Denise is 14 years old, but Travis still calls her “my baby girl.” As a young child, she used to wait for him at the front door as he arrived home from work. He lived to see her smile. “She made me feel like a dad,” he said.
When Denise was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in 2009, her parents were devastated. She received a bone marrow transplant from a hospital near her North Carolina home, but the transplant failed in 2010. This time, things seemed hopeless. Denise’s sister, her previous donor, was ruled out, and the national bone marrow registry had no other matches. Where could they turn?
Luckily, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (national charity code #10560) offered a special procedure called a haploidentical transplant, allowing Denise’s mother, who was only a half transplant match, to be her donor.
“It was hard to think about taking Denise so far from home,” admitted Denise’s mother, Valeria, “but our doctor told us St. Jude was the best place.” The family obtained a referral, and Denise is in remission today.
Travis calls St. Jude a “safe place for families” and praises the hospital’s infection control precautions and steps taken to ensure the comfort of not only the patients, but also the caregivers.
St. Jude saved Denise, but there are many kids still fighting. Travis believes St. Jude research must continue. St. Jude speeds research discoveries directly from labs to the bedsides of patients and to doctors and scientists worldwide. To Travis, this means a lot.
Denise is doing well today. She has a special gift for arts and crafts. "She’s a people person who has never met a stranger." Her smile lights up the room.
You can help support the care for patients such as Denise and the research that could save children just like her by giving through the Community Health Charities of America (CHCA) or the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) programs.
By designating St. Jude (national charity code #10560) as your charity of choice, you will ensure that St. Jude has the necessary funds to continue its lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children and giving hope to families in their darkest hour.
