Aubree Sutton (top left) is 8 years old and lives in Florence. She was diagnosed with Medulloblastoma, which is a cancerous brain tumor, at the age of 7. She is a current patient at St Jude, getting treatment every other week.  She is homeschooled.
 
Sydney (bottom left) is 16 years old. She has been a patient of St. Jude since she was 3 years old.  At 5 months old, Sydney was diagnosed with a brain tumor. She received 18 months of chemotherapy treatment from the ages of 3 to 5 years old. She has been off of chemotherapy treatment since 2010. Her tumor is significantly smaller, however, Sydney’s tumor is not operable, so she still goes to St. Jude once a year for checkups and an MRI.  Her tumor is still stable, which means it isn’t growing. This is always the report they want to hear until that day when she can be cancer free!!!
