And your participating is needed in this effort to help save young lives afflicted with childhood cancer.

Dr. Maggie Cupit-Link begins practicing medicine at St. Jude Children’s Hospital next month where she was once a patient.

Cupit-Link was diagnosed with a type of bone cancer called ewing sarcoma at 19 years old. She had a tumor in her leg. When her diagnosis came down she was a freshman pre-med student at Rhodes College in Memphis, Tennessee, and she had actually been accepted to do research at St. Jude, where she was then a patient.

Cupit-Link said her experience with cancer taught her a lot about empathy, and looks forward to treating childhood cancer patients.
