Meet Cub


In October 2014, Cub was treated for pneumonia, but his teacher noticed he looked pale when he returned to school. Results from his bloodwork revealed that Cub suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of childhood cancer. Cub’s treatment as a St. Jude patient includes more than two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy.

Once we arrived at St. Jude, it was like being enveloped with love and compassion.
