Julian's Story

After almost 4 years of perfect health, Julian Golden was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on 2/16/11. He began chemo on 2/17/11.

For 15 days, the chemo reduced the leukemia cells ("blasts") in his blood from 34% to 2%, but also killed off the white blood cells and other parts of the blood that would normally enable him to fight infections.

Two weeks after his treatment began, Julian went into sepsis and lost his leukemia battle in a matter of hours.

His mother created a CaringBridge site when he was first diagnosed. Read Julian's story through his mother's journal at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/juliangolden

Your Donation

This memorial fund will be used for research related directly to children's cancer. Your donation will enable research that will help spare other children from this outcome.

The Champions for Childhood Cancer Research program is a tool for families to use when friends, family members and coworkers ask “what can we do to help?” It’s a place for families to celebrate and honor the milestones of children who survive their cancer battles, as well as a place to remember those special children who did not survive.

Children’s Cancer Research Fund knows that a family that experiences the diagnosis of cancer or a genetic disease related to cancer needs a lot of support throughout the journey. The one thing they want the most though is a cure for their child and for any child whose family hears that devastating and frightening diagnosis.

Children’s Cancer Research Fund shares that focused goal — to eradicate childhood cancer. We are a national non-profit investing in a leader in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of childhood cancer, the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center. Together, we are accelerating the pace of discoveries — from research lab to patient care — that are revolutionizing the way childhood cancer is treated worldwide. Children’s Cancer Research Fund also educates the public about childhood cancer and supports quality-of-life programs for pediatric cancer patients and their families as they undergo their cancer treatment.
