Meet Carlie — St. Jude Patient

As we begin to ask you to become a St. Jude “Partner in Hope” today, we’d like to introduce to you some of the people who will receive your love and hope.

Last winter, Carlie had tonsillitis, strep throat, pneumonia and bronchitis — all in the span of a few months. And this May, a blood test finally revealed the source of the trouble: Carlie had leukemia. She was referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® , where she was diagnosed with acute myeloid leukemia.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

Carlie is undergoing four rounds of chemotherapy at St. Jude, and her cancer is already in remission.

“I’m thankful, so thankful,” said Carlie’s mom. “I have not met one person at St. Jude who is not just amazing and a godsend.” Carlie will be in the seventh grade this fall, and her mom describes her as being a nurturer. “Carlie has patience with other kids and has a very good nature about her,” said her mom. “She likes to make people happy.”
