Micaela’s Army was originally a group of prayer warriors loving & supporting Micaela through her battle with Leukemia. Now Micaela’s spirit continues to inspire us to fight to find a cure for better treatments for childhood, adolescent,and young adults.
Our mission is to raise and donate money to help fund cancer research, education, awareness, and patient support for the cancers that affect children, adolescents, young adults and their families.

Thank you to the students of John Paul II High School and Prince of Peace Catholic School for your recent donation of stuffed animals to Micaela’s Army Foundation.
These loveable friends were given to the patients at Children’s Medical Hospital in Dallas.
This year, the funds raised by Micaela’s Army Foundation went to support a $115,000 St. Baldrick’s Scholar awarded to Jessica Shand, M.D., at University of Rochester. Dr. Shand will study how leukemia can send “trick signals” to the immune system and look for ways to turn off those signals so that the immune system can be used to cure leukemia.
“We want to be a voice for pediatric cancer research and by partnering with St. Baldrick’s Foundation we have the ability to be a strong loud voice for more funding in pediatric cancer research and for the children who face cancer.” One day we may find a cure and families will not have to know pediatric cancer like we do.” Sharon White
