My name is Anna James Bourgeois and
thanks to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital,
I am now 100% cancer free!
When I was only 15 months old I was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. For the next 2.5 years, I went through the chemotherapy protocol to get rid of the leukemia. It was a long, hard time with countless medications, hospital stays, and awful side effects ... but I made it through!
I am now 8 years old, and have not had chemo in over four years. Thanks to St. Jude, I now get to live like a normal kid - swimming, going to the beach, going to school, taking tennis, art and piano lessons ... and just being happy and healthy!
Please donate to St. Jude to help me thank them for saving my life. It is my home-away-from-home and I love it there. Dr. Sandlund and Martha May (my NP) are two of my favorite people ever.
"But it all turns out all right, you see.
And I go back to being ... me."
