Alex Cook

T-cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia

One day Alex Cook was a sophomore at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB) worrying about class schedules and homework, the next he was facing the reality of a cancer diagnosis. “It all started with a swollen lymph node in his neck,” said Alex’s stepfather, Michael Lowe. “He did a couple rounds of antibiotics, but it did not go away.”

Jada Lucas

Severe Aplastic Anemia, Bone Marrow Transplant

Jada Lucas rarely got sick as a child, so when she suddenly lost her energy and developed unexplained bruises, it was a big deal. “I frequently got tired and wasn’t wanting to do the normal things a 9-year-old would want to do,” said Jada, now age 22. “We thought the bruise was just a spider bite, but my mom took me to the doctor anyway just to make sure.”
