Meet David from Illinois – St. Jude Patient

david

In December 2013, David had a fainting spell on Christmas Eve. He was rushed to the local emergency room, where doctors suspected he may have cancer. David and his family arrived at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital© the very next day, where tests confirmed he suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. His treatment plan includes chemotherapy and the cancer is now in remission. “I don’t know where our family would be without St. Jude,” said David’s mom, Catherine. “The things happening here are amazing.” Families never receive a bill from   St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. David is an inquisitive kid who likes playing games and riding his bike. He’s in the second grade and lists science and reading among his favorite subjects.
