Angelica

Angelica At age 6 Leukemia

When Angelica began to experience persistent fevers, soreness, and a loss of appetite, her mother grew increasingly worried. Over a period of four months, Angelica lost an alarming amount of weight. Doctors couldn’t pinpoint the reason why. Angelica underwent a series of tests that revealed she suffered from acute myeloid leukemia. Her family was devastated. “My world crashed to a halt,” said Angelica’s mother. At St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, Angelica’s treatment includes chemotherapy. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago. In the warm summer months, Angelica loves to splash in the pool with her friends. “Everything about Angelica is special,” her mom said. “Her smile, her playfulness, her whole life; because she’s happy, I’m happy.”

Auston

Auston At age 7 Brain tumor

Auston loves building things with Legos. He’s a friendly, outgoing kid. But in 2012, Auston’s parents noticed that he started to have trouble walking and he couldn’t hold anything with his left hand. Auston’s mom and dad took him to the doctor, where tests revealed Auston suffered from a brain tumor. He had surgery the very next day to remove the tumor. Auston was then sent to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® for his treatment. Auston’s parents are grateful for the care everyone at St. Jude gave him. “From the custodians to the nurses to the doctors, everyone is wonderful,” said Auston’s mom. Auston is now finished with treatment and he visits St. Jude for checkups.

Angiel

Angiel At age 10 Bone cancer

In May 2011, after a ballet recital, Angiel’s right leg started to hurt. A week later, she woke up in the middle of the night because her leg hurt so much. Her mother took her to the doctor, where an X-ray revealed that Angiel had a tumor on her right leg. Angiel was referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, where doctors found she suffered from a type of bone cancer called osteosarcoma, and there were tumors in both of her legs. Angiel’s treatment at St. Jude included chemotherapy and surgery to remove the tumors. She also had physical therapy to help her regain her strength. While undergoing treatment, Angiel attended school at the hospital. Her favorite subject is math.
