Success story image

Miller Children's Hospital Long Beach Patient, Julia Hernandez, Chosen as One of Only Five National "Ambassador Kids" for the St. Baldrick's Foundation

Julia's diagnosis came out of nowhere. She was always pretty healthy and just like any other teenager, you couldn't get her iPod headphones out of her ears. Julia is a fun-loving 16-year-old that loves music and sports. Just 10 days before her 16th birthday, Julia had unexplained knee pain that took her to the emergency room. After the ER, she and her mother, Beth, followed up with the orthopedist and visited the hospital for pain management. On the day after Valentine's Day Julia and her family couldn't believe the official diagnosis: her knee pain was caused by acute myeloid leukemia (AML).
