My Story

31 Jul 2020

In 1987 I was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma. I was an infant with a mass in my abdomen the size of an orange at only 6 months. A lot of kids don't have their cancer diagnosed until they are 6 years old, let alone six months. I have a keen awareness of how lucky I am. Often, the fact that I had cancer gave me imposter syndrome. I'd walk at cancer walks as a survivor, but I didn't remember my treatment. I'd talk to other cancer survivors and they'd ask me when I had cancer - decades ago. I have been so separated from my cancer that at one point my doctor told me I could stop reporting it on forms because it was no longer medically relevant.

I had two twin boys in 2018. They're healthy and happy, and I love them so much that I get "cute aggression". Becoming a father has reframed my perspective on my cancer. I no longer think about the event as it impacted me, but how it impacted my parents. Thoughts of my own reaction to news of my kids getting cancer gives me purpose in this cause.

    Well shoot... I didn't expect this to get so much momentum this early! Thank you very much to everybody who has donated so far. I'm going to increase my goal to $1000 now to see if we can do even better!

    If we aren't careful I might need to try biking more than 200 Miles!
