Childhood cancer research can benefit not only all types of cancer but also other diseases and serious medical issues that affect children. Our friends, Kaylyn and Jon, who have followed Georgia's journey and supported our fundraising efforts, saw this firsthand when their daughter, Elise, was diagnosed with a rare tumor at just two months old. Called melanotic neuroectodermal tumor of infancy, Elise's tumor was only locally aggressive (thankfully) but required a complicated surgery and continued monitoring through our clinic, the Children's Blood and Cancer Center. Six months later, she is still tumor-free, and so to celebrate Elise and to help further research into her tumor type and all childhood cancers, Kaylyn is going to be brave and Go BALD! Next month, she will lose her locks at the Dell Children's St. Baldrick's event, and the rest of the Peachy Keens will be there to support her! If you'd like to be a hero for Elise, Georgia, and all kids in the fight, you can donate HERE. Thanks, y'all!
