In August 2014, Mabry developed an ear infection she couldn’t shake. Then, her face swelled. Tests soon revealed Mabry suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), a type of blood cancer.
Mabry was immediately sent to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where she would undergo two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy.
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – so they can focus on helping their child live.
Mabry’s parents are grateful for everything St. Jude provides. “There’s so much support from the doctors and nurses,” said Jenny, Mabry's mom. “There are parent mentor programs and play groups. Everyone here cares about your child.”
Mabry celebrated the end of her treatment with a No More Chemo party, surrounded by her care team, friends and family. She’d been receiving leukemia treatment for more than half her life.
Thanks to St. Jude, we’re ready to watch Mabry grow up and be a strong beautiful woman and help change lives like St. Jude has for us.
Mabry loves singing and dressing up like a princess at every opportunity, and returns to St. Jude for regular checkups.
