St. Jude Patient of the Month: Charlie

Our St. Jude Patient of the Month is Charlie.

Charlie

Charlie's Story

Charlie loves airplanes, soccer, dogs and donuts. He’s a gregarious young teenager who doesn’t mind opening up about what he’s been through. He wants people to know the seriousness of childhood cancer.

“It’s different in a child because your child’s still growing. Everything’s still developing. It attacks, it consumes,” he said.

Charlie was diagnosed in 2020 with Ewing sarcoma in his shoulder and quickly referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, where he underwent chemotherapy and surgery to replace the cancerous bone with a titanium rod.

It was not his family’s first experience with St. Jude.

Decades earlier, Charlie’s aunt had received cancer treatment at St. Jude. She did not survive, passing away as a child on Christmas Day.

“We remember her every year on Christmas Day,” said his mom, “but actually being in the same place, the same grounds, on that same day. It was eerie. It was strange. But there was a sense of peace, too. An odd sense of peace.”

Charlie completed treatment, and his scans have remained clear. St. Jude is “a lifesaving organization,” he said. “Without donors, that would not be possible.”

“All the things that they have done for her is a pretty big bill and knowing that I don’t have to work about it is a relief,” said her father, Rawy.

Vilma said as soon as she walked through the doors of St. Jude, she felt peace. The hospital, she thought, would give her daughter a fighting chance. More than six months after their arrival to St. Jude, Liliana is almost finished with chemotherapy, her mom said. “Having my daughter with me…who makes me laugh every day, I feel very happy,” she said.
