St. Jude: Hillary Husband

By  | 

Hillary Husband, 20, was 14 years-old when she was diagnosed with Leukemia.

"I just remember I'd been getting these pinprick bruises up and down my leg. I'd been feeling faint all day," said Hillary.

She was taken to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital to begin treatment.

"It's really been like a second home to me; the staff has become family," said Hillary.

Hillary relapsed and was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma.

"There's a tutor here that got me through high school. They corresponded with my school and I was able to take all of the classes I wanted and graduate valedictorian of my class," said Hillary.

Hillary says without St. Jude her quality of life wouldn't be what it is.

"I'm able to go to college and they got me interested in medicine, so I'm going that direction with my career and St. Jude has completely changed my life," said Hillary.
