Jazzy’s Story

St. Jude Patient Jazzy

Jazzy is the youngest of three and the only girl. She’s the apple of her family’s eye. When Jazzy’s family learned she had medulloblastoma, a rare brain cancer, they turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® for her treatment. At St. Jude, Jazzy’s treatment will include 30 rounds of proton therapy and four rounds of chemotherapy. “When we first learned Jazzy had cancer, it was like the rug was ripped out from under us,” said Jazzy’s mom, Mykel. “But then we hit the ground running. We love her nurses and the staff here. Her doctor is brilliant.” Jazzy likes school and her favorite subject is math. She enjoys making crafts and slime, and she likes to dance and read. 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. “At St. Jude, they’ve made everything worry-free,” said Mykel. “We can focus on Jazzy.”
