Meet Maelin-Kate

In 2017, a scheduled orthopedic surgery resulted in a diagnosis of a very rare blood disease, Fanconi anemia, for Maelin-Kate. People with Fanconi anemia do not produce healthy bone marrow--so they don't produce healthy blood. Untreated, this genetic disease can cause leukemia.

At St Jude Children's Research Hospital®, Maelin-Kate underwent chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant. Quickly, her care team came to feel like family. "She knew her doctors and nurses loved her," says her mom.

"She knew that they wanted the best for her." Today, Maelin-Kate is doing great. "She's just super joyful,' says her mom. "Every day, she finds a reason why it's the best day ever. She makes everybody smile every day, because she loves everything about life."
