Calvin's Story

Calvin

In July 2016, Calvin’s family learned he had an aggressive, non-cancerous brain tumor called a craniopharyngioma. He underwent surgery in California, after which his family traveled to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® for his continuing treatment. At St. Jude, Calvin’s treatment included surgery and six weeks of proton therapy. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. Calvin has completed treatment and returns to St. Jude for checkups. It gives Calvin’s family comfort to know how much he loves the hospital. “He is always ready to come back,” his mom said. Calvin is an outgoing kid who likes basketball, playing video games and hanging out with his family and friends.
