Vivienne was just 4 years old when doctors first saw a solid mass in her lungs. After not shrinking with antibiotics, the St. Jude affiliate clinic at St. Francis, started testing on Thanksgiving weekend. Once doctors thought she needed care in Memphis, we went right away! After weeks of testing, we were sent home for Christmas, then back for surgery in January! The orange size neuroblastoma tumor was removed from her chest, and 99% was removed!! We were never charged for care, food, or a place to stay. Vivi is now cancer free!! We have had two, four month checkups, and it hasn't come back!!!! Amen!!
Making memories. Supporting a mission. That’s why our team has signed up to fundraise for the St. Jude Walk/Run. This September, we’re joining the nationwide movement to honor Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and support those who need us most — the kids of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Can we count on your donation to support our team?
Since its founding 60 years ago, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent.
And because St. Jude shares the breakthroughs it makes, every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Thank you for supporting us and the lifesaving work happening at St. Jude today. Let’s cure childhood cancer. Together.
