Spring break adventures


For many families, spring break is a special time for trips and vacations. But for St. Jude patients and their families, having a spring break can be a challenge. However, St. Jude strives to provide treatment on an outpatient basis as much as possible, so children can spend more time at home. Check out what these six patients have been up to during their spring breaks in 2019.


Tyler and Alyssa

St. Jude patients Tyler and Alyssa, who are cousins, spent spring break in St. Louis with their families. Here, they're posing with the world's largest chess piece!

George hit the slopes in Big Sky, Montana, for spring break. “He was shredding the blue slopes and one black slope, less than a year after surgery to remove a brain tumor,” said his mom. “We’re so thankful.” 



Savannah spent part of spring break at St. Jude for a checkup. "She loves coming back and seeing her doctors and nurses," said her mom.

Cheyenne spent spring break close to home in Virginia with her golden retriever Maycee. The family got Maycee after Cheyenne completed treatment for kidney cancer. She loves the fact that Maycee is golden because that’s also the color of gold is the color for childhood cancer awareness.
