Help Us Strike out Cancer in Kids
In June of 2017, Griffin was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the tender age of 3-years-old. Since his diagnosis, Griffin has undergone bone marrow aspirations, lumbar punctures, and intensive chemotherapy, to name just a few elements of his treatment.
Now, thanks to the care that he's received at Maine Children's Cancer Program, Griffin is thriving; he keeps busy with sports, fishing, playing Legos, and biking outside - and even recently got rid of his training wheels! After over three years of fighting, Griffin will be finishing up his chemotherapy this October and is excited to celebrate his end of treatment and enter the 1st grade.
You can help kids like Griffin fighting childhood cancer by helping us to virtually sell out Hadlock Field to strike out cancer in kids!
