acute lymphoblastic leukemia

Kayla has big dreams. When she grows up, she wants to have her own television show. With a personality that bubbles over and a bright smile, Kayla makes friends with everyone she meets. Kayla is a patient at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where she is undergoing treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. She will receive chemotherapy for two-and-a-half years. Through the generous support of donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. "We're so thankful for St. Jude," said Kayla's mom. "The doctors and nurses are so caring. I can focus on Kayla and getting her well."

Help save the lives of patients like Kayla by participating in this year's St. Jude Give thanks. Walk.
