St. Jude patient Hayley

St. Jude patient Hayley Arceneaux

In February 2002, a tumor the size of an egg was discovered just above Hayley's knee. Doctors diagnosed it as osteosarcoma (bone cancer). Thanks to the chemotherapy and limb-saving surgery she received at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital the cancer has been put into remission.

Hayley will enter 10th grade this fall and plans to get her learner’s permit this year. Her favorite television show is Friends, and her favorite subjects in school are English and Drama. She loves fashion and theater, and wants to be an actress when she grows up.
