Meet Abraham

After a CT scan revealed Abraham had a mass on his brain, identified as a cancerous brain tumor called a medulloblastoma, his family turned to St. Jude for help.

In February 2018, Abraham’s right eye turned inward. The eye doctor said it was probably muscle weakness, 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.

“It was just terrifying,” said his mom. “It broke my heart and made me so scared for him.” 

At St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Abraham’s treatment included high-dose radiation therapy and chemotherapy. 

 
 

Families, like Abraham's, will never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything.

Abraham, who is now 6, is finished with treatment and returns for regular checkups. He loves playing outside and coloring with his dad. And he just began kindergarten.
