Become a Partner in Hope For Beckham in Melba
8-year-old Beckham Hoagland-Bice, his beautiful Mother Allie, and his entire family in Melba need YOU to become a St. Jude Partner in Hope so that other families don't have to go through the heartache that they are facing.
Last November Beckham was diagnosed with terminal brain cancer, DIPG. Every day they have with Beckham is precious. I promise you if you ever met this sweet little boy with his contagious smile and infectious personality you would become a Partner in Hope in an instant.
Imagine the doctors telling you that there is no hope. How would you continue on, how would you breathe? The only thing you could hold onto is the ongoing research done by hospitals like St. Jude to make breakthroughs in one of the most devastating childhood cancers.
If you have children in your life that you love, think about them right now, think about a doctor telling you your child has brain cancer that is inoperable. The despair and desperation you would feel is unthinkable to most people.
The only way we can get to a place where no parent ever has to receive that horrific news is through incredible research and discoveries that are happening every day at St. Jude and then those discoveries being freely shared by St. Jude to hospitals across the country.
Beckham loves dinosaurs and wanted to be a paleontologist and a race car driver when he grew up. Cancer has stolen those dreams from him.
200-400 children in the United States are diagnosed with DIPG ever year. Allowing them to die is completely unacceptable. We have to come together and we have to do something. All of us.
Do it for Beckham. Do it for his young Mother Allie, who calls her little boy her "best friend" and who cannot imagine this world without her sweet boy.
When St. Jude started over 50 years ago, the rate of survival for childhood cancer was 20%. Today it is over 80% overall, and that is only possible with Partners in Hope like you. Don't say no to this. I promise you can afford it. Become a Partner in Hope right now by calling 1-800-363-5334 or clicking the link below.
