On April 5, 2012, Jeff and Mandy Moody noticed an unusual glow in her 6 week old daughter’s eye. After a battery of tests with a pediatric opthalmologist and retina specialist, she was preliminarily diagnosed with retinoblastoma, a rare malignant form of eye cancer. they were referred to St. Jude and Dr. Wilson.
At age 13 cancer usually is the last thing on your mind. Not for Vivian. After having pain in her leg and then the discovery of a lump on her knee, her parents took her to the Dr. where they then received the news. From that point on Vivian’s mindset changed. She knew what she had to do, and she knew it was going to be the fight of her life. After many surgeries and one year of chemotherapy, Vivian is clear of cancer, and fulfilling her life’s passion to give back to the place that helped save her life. Today, Vivian is a college student as well as a member of Delta Delta Delta. St. Jude has been Tri Delta’s national philanthropy partner since 1999 and Tri Delta members have raised more than $27 million to date.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has been a tremendous help to families. They provide world class care at no cost to their patients. Cancer and other childhood diseases do not discriminate, and St. Jude treats all people, no matter their backround or financial status.
