St. Baldrick's Foundation

Our twelve-year-old daughter, Leah, was diagnosed with brain cancer four years ago. After two years of chemotherapy and a month of radiation, cancer still has a significant impact on her daily life. Recently, the tumor has weakened the respiratory signals from her brainstem, and she has been hospitalized since November 10th. Her breathing has been stabilized, and she is receiving four hours of therapy each day to regain her strength and ability to walk. 

Two years ago, we honored our Brave Strong Girl with a t-shirt campaign to support Childhood Cancer Awareness. This year, we planned to honor Leah with another t-shirt campaign, wearing gray in May to support Brain Cancer Awareness. Following Leah's hospitalization, we decided to launch the campaign earlier than initially planned. All proceeds will benefit the St. Baldrick's Foundation. Only 4% of U.S. federal funding is dedicated to childhood cancer research. St. Baldrick's is the largest private funder of childhood cancer research. Their mission is to find cures and to give childhood cancer survivors long and healthy lives. And that is our wish for our Brave Strong Girl... a long and healthy life.
