Bailey Black Widow [Video]

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.
