Ellen’s St. Jude Story

The mother of 3-year-old Ellen was plagued with worry over her daughters swollen lymph nodes, even though doctors repeatedly told her it was nothing.

They insisted the bumps on Ellen’s head and neck were caused by a simple infection. But after three months of taking antibiotics with no improvement, Ellen’s primary care doctor examined the bump on her head and said, Its not good.

I don’t know what this is, but we need to get it off. The doctor sent them immediately to the local children’s hospital, where the family was devastated to learn their little girl had non-Hodgkin lymphoma. The doctor referred Ellen to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
