St. Jude Patient of the Month: Luxe
Our St. Jude Patient of the Month is Luxe.
As a kindergartener, Luxe’s legs became so covered in bruises, they turned black and blue – and stayed that way. Granted, she was an active child, but before long, she event had tiny bruises around her eyes. Her parents took her to the doctor.
Luxe was diagnosed with severe aplastic anemia. Her patents were told to imagine her bone marrow as a factory that had shut down due to production; her body was, essentially, making no blood products. She was referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, and was receiving daily blood transfusion as her care team readied her for a bone marrow transplant, with her brother as her donor.
In April 2022, however, Luxe’s bone marrow started failing again. She returned to St. Jude for a second transplant, this time from an unrelated donor.
“St. Jude have been our savior,” said her mom, Meagan. “When your child gets a diagnosis, things get dark. When you know there’s a place that is constantly researching and coming up with new treatments and new breakthroughs, it gives you that hope. I feel like we’re going to see some pretty remarkable things come from it.”
Meagan describes Luxe as “a force” with “CEO energy”. She loves pink and glitter and princesses, and her ambitions include owning a cat café.
