When he was just six weeks old, a biopsy showed that Braxton had a rare brain tumor called choroid plexus carcinoma.

It was like, ‘We need to get you to St. Jude.'

The family made the trip from their home in California to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.


Families, like Braxton's, will never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything.

You cannot express how amazing St. Jude is. You can realize it once you get here, but you can’t explain it in words.

    Braxton is one of a number of St. Jude patients who have Li-Fraumeni syndrome, a genetic condition that predisposes him to develop cancers

    After his lengthy treatment at St. Jude, Braxton went home cancer-free. Unfortunately, however, his cancer returned.

    Having to do another treatment to beat Braxton’s cancer is scary, but coming back to St. Jude allows us to stay calm and hopeful. Our amazing team helps us feel secure.
