Bailey Black Widow [Video]

Bailey Black Widow

Born in Stalingrad, Russia, Black Widow grows up to become a special agent trained as a spy, martial artist, and sniper, and is outfitted with an arsenal of high-tech weaponry. Much like the ongoing battles against her evil enemies, our Black Widow continues in her fight against pediatric cancer. The fight is on and Black Widow is ready for battle.

Bailey was diagnosed with PH+, B-Cell, Leukemia in March 2017 at the age of 13. Treatment was going as expected until August 10th when she developed Sepsis, and was admitted to the ICU, eventually being put onto a ventilator, drug induced coma, where all her organs began failing. Overcoming tremendous challenges, Bailey remained in remission for nearly 2 years before relapsing this summer at the age of 18. She is currently on treatment and undergoing CAR-T Cell Therapy.

We are honored to introduce Black Widow – Bailey.

My Final Day [Video]

This is an emotional video for me to make. I am very glad you're here to watch it. Please leave comments and feedback below I would love to talk to you.Song: As The World Caves In - Matt Maltese (Cover by Sarah Cothran) https://youtu.be/SqDjQPoJxiwHere's The Link to Donate: https://runsignup.com/adambeebeI am participating in the Canyon to The Coast Challenge. We run, walk, ride, swim, (etc) 600 miles in total over the course of six months.I wanted to share the opportunity to donate to support pediatric cancer research via the Friends of Cathryn Foundation.LET'S MAKE AN IMPACT!Children’s Cancer Research Needs Funding -100% of your donation goes straight to fund research!The reality is, without philanthropic donations from individuals and organizations like FRoC, research for children’s cancer would be abysmally funded. The facts are that there are more breast cancer, melanoma, prostate cancer and other “adult” cancer drugs funded because there are more of these cancers than there are cancers common to children. A drug company reaches a larger patient population (and makes more money) when they develop a drug for “adult” cancers. Thankfully, the rates of survival for these cancers have moved in the right direction but it has left a gap in the funding for children’s cancers. That leaves us, those advocating for children’s cancers, to fight for dollars to fund the most impactful therapies for kids.The other challenge is to fund the research, not the organization giving to the research. We have no overhead thus, when you donate to FRoC, 100% of your donation goes straight to our mission.
