In 1972, doctors diagnosed 4-year-old Sandy Owen with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of childhood cancer. She had less than a 50% chance of survival. Chemotherapy and radiation treatments cured her cancer. Now, 50 years later, she lives each day to the fullest.
The Together by St. Jude online resource honors childhood cancer patients and their families this month and every month. It includes information about diagnoses and treatments.
