On Superhero Day at school, St. Jude patient Drew picked a very special costume: “He went as a chemo drug that saves lives [including his], and he wore his 'This Shirt Saves Lives' St Jude tee. The blue hair is to look like a chemical,” said his mom Shawna. Who is your favorite superhero? Let us know in the comments below!

Za’Mya was diagnosed with #sicklecell disease shortly after birth when doctors did a newborn screening, and she was referred to St. Jude. “I don’t want sickle cell to be what weighs Za’Mya down,” her mom Nytasha said. “She has to be a little more cautious, but I want her to do everything and more — despite sickle cell.” Thanks to the treatment Za’Mya is receiving at St. Jude, she is a thriving little girl.

Join us in congratulating our friends @FloridaGeorgiaLine, who received the annual Angels Among Us Award presented during the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids seminar today! “There is truly no place like St. Jude,” says Tyler. “Whenever we visit, we are continually inspired by the kids’ strength and their amazing stories of bravery. Giving back is in our hearts and to be presented this award is an absolute honor.” Thanks to Tyler and Brian for raising awareness of #StJude. Because of you, families at St. Jude never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food.
Thanks to its "Power of One" mantra, employees at Averitt Express have the opportunity to donate $1 from each paycheck to St. Jude as part of the longest-running company giving program in St. Jude history. But for employee Pete Uptown, the mantra hit close to home when his son was diagnosed with cancer and St. Jude saved his life. Visit the #linkinbio to read their incredible story.

St. Jude patient Arianna’s father Enrique, is a proud Navy veteran. He and his family were stationed in Japan in 2009 when Arianna was diagnosed with a rare type of tumor. They traveled halfway around the world to come to St. Jude and get her the best treatment available: “Me siento muy orgulloso de haber servido en la Marina de los Estados Unidos. Growing up, my dad always talked about how he wished he could have had the opportunity to serve in the US Military but couldn’t because he did not become an American citizen until after the age requirement cut off to serve. I think that is partly what always made me proud to serve and felt privileged to serve. Siempre que me acuerdo de esas pláticas con mi papá, pienso que me habría gustado que también él hubiera tenido la oportunidad.” Arianna sadly passed away in 2014 and Enrique now serves the lifesaving mission of St. Jude as an employee for ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization. #NationalHispanicHeritageMonth
