My Story

I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in May of 2020. From the minute I was told I had cancer, I vowed to help other children in their battle against this terrible disease. I am in the Maintenance phase of my treatment and have a year and a half to go of pills, chemo and spinal taps. I am so grateful for the treatments which have saved my life but their effects on me and other warriors I know are really tough. I know there has to be a better way to treat childhood cancer!Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick's Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for safer treatment and a cure.
