Paige L. Marquez Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation

I was a happy and healthy girl. This picture was taken at my big sisters 5th birthday party in November 2004. We were bowling.


Hello, my name is Paige Marquez. I was born on May 17, 2001 in San Pedro, California. On June 17, 2005 I was diagnosed with a rare brain and spinal cord cancer called A-Typical Terratoid/Rhabdoid brain tumor (ATRT for short). After 45 days in the hospital I died on July 30, 2005 when I was 4 years old. My family does not want any other children or families to go through the suffering we have gone through so they are fundraising for pediatric brain cancer research.


My dad is also available to talk to any other mommy’s and daddy’s who also have an angel like me.


We have represented Childrens Brain Tumor Foundation at Stand Up To Cancer (SU2C) event at the Kodak Theatre.


Childhood brain tumors is now the number one killer of kids and progress is not being made in finding a cure. That is why there is such an urgent need to raise money as there are more kids diagnosed every day. Please consider making a donation to any of the following organizations that we support:


Children's Brain Tumor Foundation


Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation
