When 5-year-old Gracie didn’t want her belly touched, her mom feared appendicitis. In fact, the diagnosis was worse: acute lymphoblastic leukemia.
Gracie began a treatment plan of two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy at St. Jude, at no cost to her family.
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.
You can help kids, like Gracie, by signing up to coordinate a St. Jude Trike-A-Thon event at your preschool or daycare.
