Make a difference to St. Jude families like Bella's today
In Mumbai, 13-month-old Bella's cancer was initially diagnosed as incurable after surgery to remove a brain tumor. The father of a child being treated at the same hospital told them about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
After additional pathology from St. Jude and another hospital in India, Bella’s diagnosis was changed to a survivable disease — anaplastic ependymoma. At St. Jude, Bella received proton therapy and chemotherapy.
Today, she’s a thriving toddler. With your support, St. Jude can help more kids like Bella and their families as we continue our lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
