Kayla remained positive and upbeat throughout her two-and-a-half year treatment for acute lymphoblastic leukemia. In 2015, she was finally finished with chemotherapy and celebrated with a “No More Chemo party.” Now, between regular checkups at St. Jude, Kayla takes dance classes at a performing arts school.

On her final visit to St. Jude for active treatment, Jordyn (and little sister Jolei) met St. Jude survivor, Tayde, who was also treated for the same type of leukemia. “Having the opportunity to spend time with Tayde and witness her meeting Jordyn was so beautiful,” said Jordyn’s mom. “Tayde is a St. Jude pioneer for the life chance that was given to Jordyn.”

Jayson is a flirty 5-year-old with a big crush on his favorite St. Jude nurse. Though he was treated for leukemia back home in Puerto Rico in 2015, his cancer relapsed in February, and his family rushed to St. Jude.

“It was extremely difficult leaving everything behind, but if we had to go to the moon for Jayson’s treatment, that’s where we were going,” his mom said. “I have only one word to describe St. Jude: blessing.”

Five-year-old Sebastian is enjoying summertime at St. Jude by exploring campus in-between his appointments. “This hasn’t been easy, but at St. Jude they’ve made us feel right at home,” said his mother, Linette. When he grows up, Sebastian wants to be just like his doctor at St. Jude.

Lizzie started her St. Jude journey when she was just 8 weeks old, and her parents have been grateful members of the St. Jude family ever since.
“It was therapeutic for us to be here, and helped us realize that the things we were going through weren’t that bad," Lizzie's dad says. "The community — from the doctors, nurses and social workers to the security and cafeteria workers — that goes a long way."

Annisa is a blur of motion — one minute she’s knocking down block towers, the next, she’s skipping and singing her ABC’s.
“We had no idea what to expect when we arrived at St. Jude,” Annisa’s mom said. “But then you’re here, and you’re welcomed into this little community where you’re taken care of. Annisa will be a St. Jude patient for life, and as parents that makes us feel safe.”

Madison recently finished treatment. She's artistic and loves doing arts and crafts with younger patients at the hospital. "St. Jude is more than a hospital," Madison said. "It's hope. It's a cure. It's a home."
