Your donations fund lifesaving children’s cancer research

$3,575 raised
$1,000 goal


Our youngest daughter Danielle was diagnosed with a brain tumor nearly 15 years ago and she is currently undergoing another year of chemotherapy treatment. Every month we go to the clinic for her medicine and we see so many children who are also fighting this damn disease. We get a very sad and helpless feeling knowing that we can't do very much to help. So I decided to do this one very small thing to help fight pediatric cancer. Please support me with a donation to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. This volunteer-driven charity funds more in childhood cancer research grants than any organization except the U.S. government.

Your gift will give hope to infants, children, teens and young adults fighting childhood cancers. So when I ask for your support, I'm really asking you to support these kids. Thank you!
