10:16 am
13 years old, a star on his junior high team, that dream came to a halt. after his mother noticed some swollen lymph nodes on his neck, jason had blood work done and the results were not good. >> they said we have to go to st. jude's, so it was pretty shocking and a quick transition. my parents checked me out at school one day. that night i flew on my first airplane ride to memphis, and there was a -- a full team of people waiting for me at the doors at 9:00, 10:00 at night. >> jason had acute lymphoblastic leukemia and he would spend the next several years of his heart in and out of st. jude's for cancer treatments. >> it was hard but in retrospect it was a good experience. in 1995 there were many things about lukia that were not known. some of my questions had no answers, and that sparked curiosity. >> reporter: so when jason finished treatments he set out
10:17 am
on a new path, a path to help answer some of those questions. >> she's doing okay. >> reporter: he became a doctor. >> 18 years after my diagnosis as a patient here, coming back as a doctor, it was -- it was a dream come true. >> now he works with nurses and doctors who once treated him. >> very rewarding to see one of my first patients, one of the patients i treated in 1995 now come back here and become a pediatric hematologist oncologist. >> and some days he's both a doctor and patient, participate pa in the st. jude life study to help doctors understand the long-term consequences of treatment. >> i'm happy to be part of those things, to help change the beginning to affect end. >> because you're done with chemo. >> what he seems to enjoy the most are the patients, like 13-year-old andrew woodruff who once shared a similar dream as dr. schwartz. he, too, wanted to be an athlete, but when he was
10:18 am
doctors had to amputate his leg. >> it's so very comforting to know that someone knows what you are going through and that they know how much pain you feel and what the struggles are. >> i don't know that there's a better pursuit that a person can engage in in their life than giving back in the fashion that back. >> now with a wife and two children of his own, dr. schwartz is able to save his. >> dr. schwartz was there for like the biggest part of my life. he really means a lot to me. i mean, he's a part of this fight, and i just would really like to let him know that. >> marlo thomas is the national outreach director for st. jude children's research hospital. marlo, great to see you. >> thank you. >> we should point out as we were talking in our last second about the medal of freedom recipient, you won one last year yourself. >> pretty exciting. >> this is cool, too.
10:19 am
you were just telling me that this is not uncommon for a patient to dom back to the hospital. >> for us -- we either only place in the world that is studying now children that we treated 30, 40, 50 years ago, and what we have them come for an intense couple of days of study and look at them and see where are their lives normal and where are they not normal and we can predict and detect things wrong for their heart, for example, that's undetected at home and send them back to their doctors and say please prevent this and prevent a heart attack so the patients jason has today we can help him to -- to do what they are doing, the studies that they are doing on these children to prevent the side issues that many of these had 30, 40, 50 years ago. that's the beauty of having the studies going on at the same time that we're treating. >> have it from start to finish because you keep the patients. the life study program one of the ground breaking things you're doing there. another great story and we'll see more of you this week. >> thanks, willie, nice to see you. >> coming up next, actor will
