As most of you know, St. Jude was part of our family for several years. Our son, Keegan started out at St. Jude because he was on a clinical study through Boston Children's Hospital using a chemo drug to help fight his pulmonary vein stenosis, so the St. Jude doctors had to issue and monitor his chemo, results and labs. Unfortunately, he had to stop the clinical trial for various reasons....long story short, we were back at St. Jude soon after because we found out he had a tumor on his liver which was removed to only find out the disease spread to his lungs. His lungs were already so fragile due to his Congenital Heart disease. He fought so hard during his short little life and we are so thankful to St. Jude for all their support, care and generosity. Because of St. Jude advances which are made possible from donors like you, we were able to spend more time with Keegan which no one can ever take away from us. So, PLEASE will you consider donating to St. Jude to help more families like ours with hopes that one day NO CHILD will have to lose their life from this awful disease.
Thanks to generous donors:
- We & St. Jude families never received a bill from St. Jude for treatment. All we had to worry about was getting him to his numerous daily/weekly visits with hopes of helping Keegan live.
- 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.
St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation?
