My Story

Tessa Marie passed away on June 17, 2017 peacefully at home with her loving family. Tessa was a beautiful nine year old girl that was full of love and life. She was kind, compassionate, and spunky. She loved to dance and sing and spend time with her family and friends. Beautiful daughter, and loving sister. Thank you for supporting Tessa 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 a cure.
