For Maggie Cupit-Link, the world was just starting to open up.

Leaving her small town behind, she started classes at Rhodes College in Memphis and gained a summer research job at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. No small feat for a first-year college student. 

Shockingly, on what would have been her first day as a researcher, Maggie entered the St. Jude campus as a patient diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma. Heartbroken, but not defeated, she found that the challenges and adversity that took so much also provided purpose.

After finishing treatment at St. Jude, Maggie returned to college and completed medical school. Armed with a new calling and greater understanding, she now works as an oncology fellow at St. Jude and is eager to give back. 

“I wanted to be a doctor for the kids who inspired me so much,” she said.

She and her husband just had their first child, a girl named Lisla Jude.
