“St. Jude is unbelievable,” Christian's dad says. “If we would’ve been anywhere else, we know that it would’ve been a much more stressful time. Here, we get to focus on Christian’s care and not have to worry about anything else.”

“She’s taught me what it’s really like to persevere,” Lilly's mom says. “She has taught me what it’s like to fight, even when you don’t feel like you can go on any further.” When Lilly came to St. Jude, she couldn't walk, talk or swallow. But now that she's completed treatment, she's back to practicing ballet and appeared in her spring recital.

When Mary Browder was a St. Jude patient four years ago, her outdoor activities were limited. But she could hit a golf ball, and learned she could do it well. Mary Browder focused on her short game of chipping and putting, limited by the PICC line in her arm. After treatment, she could get back to hitting a full swing. “That snowballed into this and being where I am today,” she said. Mary Browder recently took third place in her regional high school golf tournament and this month played with her team to take seventh place in the state.

“Everything that was familiar and normal, all that just went to the wayside,” Macy's mom says. “We have a wonderful support system, but you get a diagnosis and you have to be separated from what you once knew because your priorities change.”

Though Alyric faces a serious diagnosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, her cheerful heart remains unchanged. “It doesn’t really affect her,” her mom says. “Just to look at her, you couldn’t tell anything was wrong. She likes to laugh and have fun and jump around.”

Every time Bella's parents tell her they're going to St. Jude, she jumps for joy. She was diagnosed with retinoblastoma in 2014, but this past summer, she received clear scans. When she grows up, Bella wants to be a doctor at St. Jude.

St. Jude patient Dakota had some fun with his hair before it began to fall out, coloring it in rainbow shades. Inspired, he then designed “crazy cuts” for his dad and his dad’s friend, who agreed to wear them for a month to raise money for St. Jude. Dakota’s designs ended up raising more than $10,000 for the kids of St. Jude.

Hannah wants to be a doctor when she grows up, just the like doctors at St. Jude who have saved her life not once, but twice. Hannah recently received a second haploidentical transplant to combat her chemotherapy-resistant leukemia, and just a few weeks ago, she turned 4 years old.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
