From Patient . . . to Survivor . . . to St. Jude Employee
Lindsey was fighting to survive 25 years ago. Now, she thrives and celebrates life.
When Lindsey was 10 years old, she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) and was suddenly faced with the possibility of not growing up and seeing all of her dreams come true. She came to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for treatment . . . and little did she know then, how much St. Jude would mean to her now. To Lindsey, St. Jude means life.
“St. Jude provides hope for life. I’m alive today because of St. Jude’s mission and I’m able to pass the gift of life along to my children,” she says.
Ever since Lindsey was diagnosed with ALL, she knew she wanted to work for the hospital that saved her life. “I love this mission. I work here in honor of those who survived and for those we’ve lost. Even though our work is far from being finished, I look forward to the day that we all get to celebrate finding a cure for cancer.”
