Ay'Den is a gentle kid with a ready smile – "a sweetheart", as his mother would say – who loves to color and run around with the dogs and play video games.
Ay’Den was quickly referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where he began receiving chemotherapy.
Families, like Ay'Den's, will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
Sharvae, Ay'Den's mom, was surprised to find out how much St. Jude does for families.
Seeing her child through cancer during a pandemic was more than difficult but St. Jude gave her renewed hope.
St. Jude made us comfortable. I don’t know what I would have done without them.
Ay’Den has now successfully finished cancer treatment.
