A lot has happened for Bailey since 2014. Three occurrences with Wilms tumor, the first in 2012, kept her busy with treatment at St. Jude. Spending all her time fighting cancer meant she missed kindergarten through the second grade in a regular school.
But Bailey kept up with her studies at the St. Jude School. Talking physics with her grandfather became a favorite pastime. She went to public school for the first time on the first day of third grade, and she gained two new siblings: her brother, Davis, and sister, Ruby.
Cancer didn’t keep Bailey from a varied list of pursuits, like making art, playing percussion and learning to bake.
Now, Bailey is in the ninth grade. She still likes art and science, but has added Netflix and Marvel comics to her list of interests. Her latest scans from St. Jude show that cancer continues to be in her rear view.
