Meet 23-Year-Old Hillary – St. Jude Patient

Hillary-Ran Marathon During Chemo

Hillary has won national awards for clogging and danced with her college dance team. But what makes her extraordinary is her resolve: Hillary is undergoing her fourth battle against cancer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Since 2008, Hillary has been fighting two unrelated types of cancer, acute lymphoblastic leukemia and non-Hodgkin lymphoma. Her treatment has included chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant (BMT). During her recovery from her BMT, Hillary walked the length of a marathon – 26.2 miles – as a way to stay active and recover after the transplant. Despite everything she’s been through, Hillary remains upbeat. She recently earned her Bachelor of Science degree in chemistry. And Hillary remains active in dance, having choreographed line dances for high school students and run a dance camp.
