Abigail, age 5, likes being outside, riding her bike and making crafts.

Abigail, who is from Virginia, loves making new friends. Gracie hails from Mississippi and adores her care team and doles out hugs and love-notes to everyone from her doctor to her Child Life specialist.

Their families are grateful for everything St. Jude has done for their daughters. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.


Let's end childhood cancer. Together.
