Judd Bailey and family

He did it.

Judd Bailey did it.

2543 pills.
27 chemotherapy infusions.
17 spinals.
13 port flushes.
6 hospital stays.
3 surgeries.
2 x-rays.
2 ultrasounds.
2 electrocardiograms.
2 bone marrow biopsies.
2 positron emission tomography scans.

Two years after being diagnosed with stage 2 B-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma, this fifth grade Mission Road Elementary School student beat cancer.

Heart pounding and tears flowing, Judd rang the bell!

His cancer story ends and gratitude begins.

“He is thankful to be ringing the bell, ending his chemotherapy treatment,” said Jessi Bailey, Judd’s mother and third grade teacher at MRES. “He is looking forward to his trip to Jekyll Island this week, his celebrations, and to be able to be a normal child again. He has felt every ounce of love and support this school and community has given him, and he cannot wait to give back to them in the future.”

His school community, filled with countless students and staff, continues to wrap their arms around the 10-year-old boy they affectionately call “Super Pug Judd.” They wear the homemade t-shirts and never miss an opportunity to grab a hug, look with admiration, and whisper, “You got this!”
