Doug’s PAWS for St. Jude Fundraising Page
We’re raising money for Team PUGgle, one of the St. Jude therapy dogs. Puggle is specially trained to help kids feel safe and comfortable during treatment. I couldn’t think of a more important job for a fellow dog! Click here, join our DTP Team and help me send Team Puggle over the top with donations!
Jessica began bringing her daughter Azaelea to the hospital frequently for stomach pain and fevers, but it was not until the pediatrician told Jessica that her daughter needed to start care immediately, that Jessica’s worst nightmare was happening as a parent. Azaela was diagnosed with Chronic Myelogenous Leukemia (CML), which is rare in children. Treatment needed to begin immediately and due to COVID only one parent could make the journey with her to University of Minnesota Masonic Children’s Hospital. They had 2 hours to get packed and to the hospital for treatment, as the leukemia was already starting to shut down her organs.
