Following several episodes of sudden high fevers around Mother’s Day 2019, Levi was found to have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). He was quickly referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® where he began two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy.
Not long after starting treatment, 8-year-old Levi was comfortably using terms like ANC and hemoglobin in conversation.
He desperately missed being able to get outside and ride bikes with other kids when his immunity was low. But, he found things to enjoy like the spaghetti and meatballs at the St. Jude cafeteria, Kay Kafe.
Because of generous donors like you, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
Levi finished treatment in December 2021 and remains in remission. He really likes science, and was excited in science class to already know so much about blood cells, from his experience with leukemia and treatment.
