Say K'day for kids like Baxter.
At just five weeks old, baby Baxter was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukaemia (AML). He immediately began a gruelling 12 months of treatment, including four rounds of back-to-back chemotherapy and spending his first Christmas in hospital.
Baxter’s body was shutting down, at one point he even suffered heart failure. But against all the odds he grasped to life and is now in remission. However, Baxter’s treatment side effects did not disappear once the chemo stopped. He suffered neural pathway damage which has delayed his developmental learning and caused a severe speech delay.
With support from his best friend and little brother, Dallas and the rest of his family, Baxter shows enormous resilience through everything life continues to throw at him. Most recently, this includes a diagnosis of autism spectrum disorder. Knowing that their son will continue to suffer ongoing developmental delays, Baxter’s family are passionate supporters of The Kids’ Cancer Project.
“The Kids’ Cancer Project means more than an organisation with cancer in its name to me. They are working to change the pattern, the outcomes, the heartache, the devastation, through science,” Emma, Baxter’s mum says.
When you pledge to say K'day this February 15, you'll be ensuring that kids like Baxter can access kinder, better treatments that will let them live brighter and fuller futures.
With your support, we can say K'day to set the course for a future defined by better cancer treatments for kids.
