In February 2016, Julián was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of blood cancer, and underwent chemotherapy treatment in Mexico, where he is from. Unfortunately, his cancer continued to come back.

Julián’s doctors referred his family to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and they arrived in March 2018.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

At St. Jude, Julián’s treatment includes a bone marrow transplant, immunotherapy and radiation therapy.

There was no hope where we came from. Thanks to St. Jude and God, I have him here with me. From the moment I got here, it has been nothing but a blessing. It is a miracle to be here.

Editor's note: We regret to inform you that Julián lost his battle in June 2020.
