St. Jude: Mabry’s Story
One little lady you will hear about during this year's WBKR St. Jude Radiothon is 3-year-old Mabry. Here is her story.
"In August 2014, Mabry developed an ear infection she couldn't shake. Then, her face swelled. Test soon revealed Mabry suffered from acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Mabry was immediately sent to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where she will undergo two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy. Mabry's sunny disposition hasn't waned during treatment. 'She's so sweet,' her mom said. 'She's always happy, always in a good mood. The kids here don't feel sorry for themselves. They just keep going and don't skip a beat.' Mabry loves to dress up in costumes, pick flowers and sing 'Let It Go' for her nurses. 'There's so much support from the doctors and nurses,' her mom said. 'There are parent mentor programs and play groups. Everyone here cares about your child'".
Thursday and Friday on WBKR, you will hear about Mabry and many other inspirational kids. Tune in to hear some amazing stories and music.
