Meet Brinley

When Brinley's leukemia relapsed, her family turned to St. Jude for treatment and care.

In 2015, Brinley was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia. Her treatment at a local hospital included a bone marrow transplant after she relapsed.

Brinley was cancer free for more than two years when, in May 2019, her family learned the cancer had returned.

Brinley’s family obtained a referral to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where her treatment included chemotherapy and a haploidentical transplant, with her mom as donor.

 
 

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

All of the different aspects of Brinley’s treatment were well communicated and organized. Her care team really worked together in optimizing what was the best for her.

Now finished with treatment, 9-year-old Brinley returns to St. Jude for regular checkups. She’s an energetic, feisty girl who loves babies and wants to be a neonatologist when she grows up.
