In February 2018, Abraham’s right eye temporarily turned inward. The eye doctor said it was probably muscle weakness, which is common at that age. But Abraham started having headaches in the morning and would sometimes throw up. Even watching TV made the little boy’s head hurt.
A CT scan finally revealed the cause of Abraham’s issues: he had a mass on his brain, identified as a cancerous brain tumor called a medulloblastoma.
Abraham underwent months of treatment, including radiation therapy and chemotherapy, at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Abraham has always been happy engaging in activities like painting and piecing together puzzles.
Abraham, who is now 9 and cancer free, returns to St. Jude for regular checkups. He enjoys fishing with his dad.
Families, like Abraham's, will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.
