ABCs of Cancer Wall
Inside the hospital, there is a wall that shows the "ABCs of Cancer". These are beautiful drawings done by the kids at St. Jude's who are fighting cancer. Each letter represents a child's perspective about their fight and what cancer means to them. This is a powerful representation of the innocence and battle they are taking on. They are beautifully illustrated in their own words and feelings as they cope and fight.
When reading through each letter and the pictures drawn, you can't help but notice the powerful words in the kid's handwriting and artwork. It is a brutally honest depiction of what they are going through. Each of the twenty-six letters gives a unique perspective from a child.
