Jenny is a very smart and artistic girl. She’s detail oriented and likes to play with toys she can assemble, especially Legos. After Jenny experienced repeated respiratory illnesses at home in Honduras, tests showed she had acute myeloid leukemia. After undergoing treatment at a local hospital, Jenny relapsed in December of 2015 and was referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 per cent to more than 80 per cent since it opened more than 50 years ago. Jenny’s treatment at St. Jude included chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Her parents are grateful for the care and additional support they received at St. Jude. “St. Jude not only gives my daughter the medical care that she needs, but they help our entire family,” said her father, Ramon. “I never imagined that it would be this way.”
