My Story

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. Tinley’s battle with Leukemia began on New Year’s Eve of 2019. She has just turned 4 years old a few days before Christmas and it was truly the most wonderful time of the year until suddenly it wasn’t. Tinley went to the ER for stomach pains and after several tests, doctors discovered she had Pre B Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. We rang in the New Year with many unknowns sitting in the hospital room wondering what this year would look like. Today, we are thankful to say she is a stronger than we could ever imagine. Tinley had a severe staff infection in her port a few weeks after it was placed and was in the battle of a lifetime to fight off the infection. Her port was removed and she was on IV antibiotics for 8 weeks. She experienced all the side effects of chemo and was often neutropenic. Through it all, she still loves to play with her baby brother Tripp, snuggle with her kittens and dreams of owning her own horse one day.
