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 a cure.
I was diagnosed the day I was suppose to be moving into college at The University of North Carolina in Greensboro to be a Musical Theater Major. I was one of six students accepted to the program and to support my recovery, they saved my spot.
After surgery, 7 weeks of Proton Radiation and months of PT/OT/Speech Rehab for Stage 3 Anaplastic Ependymoma, I started 2020 by joining my classmates. During recovery, I donated my voice to help increase awareness and support fundraising of Pediatric Cancer which is so underfunded, by singing at various events that support pediatric cancer. I will forever donate my time and treasure to Pediatric Cancer Research and support of families battling the beast. If you need entertainment or a singer at any fundraiser, I hope to be your girl!
I want to thank my mom, sisters, my medical team at Akron Children's, the UH Proton Center, my hometown of Akron Ohio, the Columbus Blue Jackets, Angel Works, Hayes Tough, Project Outrun, Thriving on a Single Ray of Sun, my new North Carolina family and the Musical Theater Community for all the support and love they have given me. No one fights alone.
