Update from our friend Royce!

21742102_10213293317383984_305512668_oSeptember is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and we are honored to support patients like Royce every day on their journey to health. The T.J. Martell Foundation was in close touch with Royce’s mother, Jess, when he was diagnosed at eight years old and quickly connected the family with the outstanding team at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles where we have funded lifesaving cancer research for decades.

“I beat cancer when I was eight years old. I want to thank Dr. Seeger for giving me hope so that I could stay at home and be with my dog instead of being in a hospital room getting cancer treatment.” Royce is a CHLA ambassador now because of what oncology did for him.

Keep riding, Royce!

Great news: update on our friend, Royce!

Many of you have read about our young friend, Royce, on our Patient Services page and social media. So we wanted to share this exciting news from his mother, Jess!

Martell’s support along with our friends, family, and the incredible team at CHLA we felt supported and guided and encouraged every step of the way. It feels wonderful to have this milestone behind us and we look forward to many more years cancer free to appreciate life and for my son to enjoy a regular childhood!”

What an inspiration! Go, Royce, go!
