At age three, Eri’Elle knows what she loves: dinosaurs, her mom and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
“When I received the diagnosis for my daughter, my hope was gone,” her mom, Angel, says. She found hope again at St. Jude.
Eri’Elle had two surgeries to remove tumors from her spine and then her ribs, plus chemotherapy and radiation therapy. Eri’Elle smiled through it all.
Families, like Eri'Elle's, never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live.
Eri’Elle has decided she wants to be a doctor when she grows up. Her mom made her a doctor’s badge to wear at St. Jude.
“I’m grateful for every dollar that anybody gives because that’s why my child’s still here,” Angel says. “That’s why she’s alive.”
