Penn’s Story

Part I

Meet Penn, a five-year old boy from Austin who wants to grow up to be a doctor, and a racecar driver – on the side, of course.

On December 15, 2019, Penn was in Los Angeles acting in a television pilot when he began having difficulty walking due to abdominal pain. Two days later, after returning home to Austin, his pediatrician was concerned enough to call for more testing.

Within an hour, his parents received a phone call that Penn’s blood cell counts and hemoglobin levels were in a place where they needed to get him to Dell Children’s Medical Center immediately.

On December 17, 2019, Penn was diagnosed with high-risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.

This would begin an unforgettable journey with Dell Children’s, where they would find just the care they need, right HERE, in Austin.

Please consider a gift to help support kids like Penn and stay tuned for more about his story in the next edition of our newsletter.
