Meet St. Jude Patient - Drew

St. Jude patient Drew is now finished with treatments. He's cancer-free and celebrated with a No Mo' Chemo party! Watch Drew's special milestone.

After spending half his life getting chemotherapy, 5-year-old St. Jude patient Drew is now finished with treatments. He's cancer-free and celebrated with a No Mo' Chemo party! Watch this special milestone with Drew and his family.

Drew was 2 years old when he was found to have acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer.

Determined to get Drew the best care, his family turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. St. Jude has increased our survival rates for ALL from 4% before we opened in 1962 to 94% today — the world’s best. Drew arrived in June 2013 and began three years of chemotherapy.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. “Knowing that we would never receive a bill from St. Jude, Danny and I can talk about what to do for Drew versus how we’re going to pay for treatment,” Shawna said. “It changes your whole mindset.”

Recently, Drew, his family and St. Jude staff tearfully celebrated the successful completion of his treatment with a “No Mo Chemo” party at St. Jude. “This is what St. Jude does,” Shawna said. “They fix kids who have cancer.”
