Brent is a chef-in-training. His favorite foods to make are cheese pizza and macaroni and cheese. St. Jude’s Chef Miles helped Brent in creating a perfect melding of the two - a macaroni and cheese pizza. 

“Brent loves the process of making a meal,” said his mom, Jill. “The cutting, the prep work and the togetherness of warm kitchen. If he’s at a stove, he’s happy.” 

Brent has been a patient at St. Jude since October 2011. He’s undergoing treatment for neuroblastoma, a cancer of the nervous system. Brent’s continuing treatment includes antibody therapy medicine produced right on the St. Jude campus that’s not available anywhere else. 

St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
