Meet Joanna

In 2017, 9-year-old Joanna was found to have medulloblastoma, a type of brain cancer. At St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, she is receiving proton therapy and chemotherapy. Joanna loves ballet, violin and her collection of stuffed animals. 

St. Jude is like home. Everything is taken care of here. We don’t have to think about anything other than taking care of Joanna.

If not St. Jude, then who?

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Join St. Jude in September to help patients, like Bailey, during Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Let’s end childhood cancer. Together.
