Nancy Davis says: "I had always all my life heard about St. Jude and what good work they do. I think anywhere you go in the country St. Jude is known."
Nancy and Greg Davis never thought they'd experience St. Jude Children's Hospital on such a personal level. But they did when they adopted their daughter, Anna-Grace, from China. They learned she had a cancerous tumor in the stem of her brain.
Greg Davis says: "When we got her she was not symptomatic at all. No symptoms at all. And by the time they diagnosed her and did surgery they said she would not have lasted another week at most."
Nancy says: "Upon learning that news, we began treatment at St. Jude's that same week. So she was 13 months at that time. She had 15 months of chemotherapy and radiation."
Now a healthy five-year-old, Anna Grace goes back to the hospital every six months for checkups to make sure the cancer is gone. She named the doll she carries with her after someone special to her from St Jude.
Anna Grace says: "Because I named her after my nurse Amy."
Her father says they learned a lot about miracles in the time they spent at St. Jude.
Greg says: "We would never have chosen to have to know that place so intimately but it is an incredible place. So we thank God for St. Jude."
Anna Grace is completely cancer-free now. Her family had vowed help saint Jude for giving them their daughter back. If you'd like to help St. Jude and have a chance to win a home worth $250,000 here's how.
