Life is crazy busy. You’ve got a toddler hanging on to your leg and a mound of laundry that isn’t going to fold itself. You’ve got a boss who keeps peering into your cubicle for no apparent reason other than to intimidate you. You just got home from work and you had a bad day and just want to sit down and watch some TV. But wait. Please. Just hold on and let these words sink in.

Stop for a minute and think of your kids. Your grandkids. Your nieces and nephews. The neighbor kids. Your best friend’s kids. Now, think about what it must be like for a mom or a dad to be told that their child has cancer. Think about the fear, the questions, the shock. Ask yourself, how does one even begin to spring back from such a punch to the gut?

While it might seem utterly impossible, every day, parents are given the devastating news their child has cancer and somehow they’re able to pull themselves up, square their shoulders, and move forward one step at a time. Have you ever wondered how they’re able to do that? Much of it comes from faith and much of it comes from the comforting support provided by the doctors and staff at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Meet Brooklyn Danger Hall. On September 19th, 2017, Brooklyn's parents were told she had a tumor. A brain tumor. At that moment, life as Brooklyn and her family knew it changed forever. This is their story.

It can be hard to decide where to donate your hard-earned money. But because of donations from people like you, the families at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital never receive a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food. St. Jude believes all a family should have to worry about is helping their child live.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital also freely shares their discoveries with doctors and scientists worldwide so they can use that knowledge to save even more children. This means your donation won’t just help kids who are and who will be patients of the hospital in Memphis, but kids who live in your community.

Brooklyn's mother says it best...

Enjoy today. Enjoy your family and your loved ones. Tell people you care about that they are important to you. Watching my daughter grow is a blessing, and I am thankful to have more time on the clock. Don't take your time for granted. When we go home we will have responsibilities like work and school. I'm not looking forward to leaving her [Brooklyn]. It's like I've been reminded of our mortality and I don't want to waste a second of it away from my kids.

Brooklyn Danger Hall is a vibrant young girl who has defied the odds. Not expected to live to see Christmas 2019, Brooklyn is not only alive today, but she just celebrated her sixth birthday and continues to thrive.
