When Honored Kid Sean graduated from college in May, he felt a tangle of emotions – happiness and sadness both. But most of all, he felt a lot of gratitude.

That’s because when he was 5 years old, he was diagnosed with childhood cancer. And when you have cancer, surviving to graduate college, or even attend college, is anything but guaranteed.

Read Sean’s story and how he plans to have a bigger impact for kids like him in the future 💛

BREAKING NEWS: Thanks to St. Baldrick’s support, a promising potential therapy developed from the herpes virus has proven to be safe in treating kids with brain tumors, according to recently released clinical trial findings.

Kids with brain tumors are treated with a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy – which can lead to long-term side effects, like hearing loss and cognitive issues.

See how St. Baldrick’s scholar Dr. Gregory Friedman is on a mission to change this and find a cure! Learn how he’s making herpes the hero in his work.

For childhood cancer survivors, treatment helps them survive, but it can also put them at risk for everything from heart attacks to secondary cancers to a stroke.

St. Baldrick’s Fellow Dr. Bhakta's work could be used to create unique screenings that would help prevent or catch issues for survivors before they get worse!
