The unexpected: St. Jude Hero becomes St. Jude parent

05/03/2019

Olivia developed mild symptoms of illness during a family vacation in July 2018. She was sleepy, and ran a low fever off and on. Less than a month later, she was a patient of St. Jude with a diagnosis of blood cancer.

Olivia’s family is local to Memphis, and they were St. Jude supporters before her diagnosis — her dad even ran in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Weekend as a St. Jude Hero.

St. Jude means hope. St. Jude means a future for our daughter. I am eternally grateful that we are fortunate enough to have this amazing place. When people give to St. Jude, they are helping to make miracles happen.”

- Olivia's mom
