My Story

Hi, I'm Brendan! I'm a 7 year old boy who loves reptiles (in particular his gecko and bearded dragon), soccer, LEGOs, Pokemon, milkshakes, the beach, fishing, video games, and most importantly, my friends and family. I was diagnosed with medulloblastoma (a type of brain cancer) in the summer of 2021 and while the tumor has been removed, I fight cancer every day with toxic treatments in the hopes of getting rid of it forever. Like so many kids like me fighting cancer, my journey is long but full of hope. Hope for a return to being a kid. Hope for research. Hope for a finding a cure. Thank you for reading my story. I know how much my family appreciates you sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation.
