Colton's Story

Colton
Colton 
2 years old

brain cancer 

Doctors discovered Colton suffered from a high-grade glioma tumor in September 2015, and he underwent brain surgery at a local hospital. Colton’s family then turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for his continuing treatment. He has undergone six rounds of chemotherapy at St. Jude and will continue maintenance chemotherapy at home. Colton is a sweet little boy who loves music and trains.

In the words of Colton's mom Colleen, “literally, St. Jude spares no expense ... it doesn’t matter the cost, they’re going to do what’s in the best interest of my child. The attitude is not to wait and see if something happens, but rather to make sure nothing happens." Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
