Meet St. Jude Patient Calvin

Calvin is an outgoing kid who likes basketball and video games. In July 2016, his family learned he had an aggressive, non-cancerous brain tumor called craniopharyngioma. After surgery in California, his family traveled to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in Memphis, Tenn., where Calvin’s treatment included additional surgeries and six weeks of proton therapy.

Runners who fundraise for St. Jude while training for their race are called St. Jude Heroes, and they’re helping kids, like Calvin. Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from everyday people, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation.

Calvin is now finished with treatment and returns to St. Jude for regular checkup appointments. He is in the fifth grade and his favorite subject is science.
