Meet Gracie

St. Jude patient Gracie's video

When 5-year-old Gracie didn’t want her belly touched, her mom feared appendicitis. In fact, the diagnosis was worse: acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Gracie began a treatment plan of two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, at no cost to her family.

Everything St. Jude is doing for us, and we won’t have to pay a bill? That’s amazing. Being able to focus on nothing but your child is a wonderful thing.
