My Story

In June 2012 we began to notice a bump on the top of our youngest daughter, Esther's, head. One June 22, 2012 she was diagnosed with a stage IV, high risk solid tumor cancer called Neuroblastoma. Esther endured 6 rounds of chemotherapy, a stem cell harvest, surgery, a stem cell transplant, 20 radiation treatments, finished her treatment with 6 months of immunotherapy. Immunotherapy is something that has given kids with neuroblastoma a significantly greater chance at cure, and it's something that came about by great research. We support St. Baldrick's because they support research that is saving kids' lives. Esther was declared cancer free with no evidence of disease (meaning there's nothing we can see) in September 2013.   We have written about our journey at www.spendandbespent.blogspot.com 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.
