St. Jude patient Carly


Meet Carly

Food is the key to understanding Carly. Food and family.

Though she longed to be a chef, her diagnosis of acute myeloid leukemia, a form of blood cancer, created a roadblock. For a long time, it was too painful for her to stand upright, which made it impossible for her to cook.

During her six months of chemo, time around the table with her family was what she missed most. Now, years removed from treatment, that quality time around the table comes with some of Carly's best dishes.

St. Jude stories from the Carolinas

Every dollar makes a difference*

  1. One red wagon

    Wagons are the preferred mode of travel through the halls of the hospital and around campus for our younger patients.

    Donate $100

  2. One red blood cell transfusion

    Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions.

    Donate $250

  3. One hour of physical therapy

    Physical therapy is provided to patients because children with life-threatening diseases like cancer may develop developmental, cognitive or physical impairments as a result of their illnesses and their treatments.

    Donate $500

  4. Parent necessities for 20 patient families

    Parents who bring their children to St. Jude often leave home in a hurry and forget to pack day-to-day necessities such as shampoos, razors, deodorant, toothbrushes and lotion. At Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, parents can obtain these essentials free of charge.

    Donate $1,000

  5. An ultrasound study for a St. Jude patient

    An ultrasound study is among the diagnostic imaging tests that doctors use to diagnose and monitor disease and treatment.

    Donate $2,500

  6. Daily room rate of the ICU

    The Intensive Care Unit at St. Jude has twice been recognized with the Beacon Award for Critical Care Excellence given by the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses. In 2009, the St. Jude ICU became Tennessee’s first ICU to win the honor.

    Donate $5,000
