St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

FedEx Express, a subsidiary of FedEx Corp., dedicated a Cessna Caravan to Kenzie, a 17-year-old patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. This is the ninth year of the Purple Eagle Program, which honors a St. Jude patient who is also the child of a FedEx team member.

Kenzie’s story is one of strength and purpose. In October 2017, she was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia, a type of cancer of the blood and bone marrow. Her family turned to St. Jude, and in July 2020, after two and a half years of chemotherapy, she completed treatment and was selected as the 2020 Purple Eagle recipient. Kenzie is now a rising high school senior and will graduate in 2022 with plans to pursue a career in nursing with the hope of working at St. Jude.

“FedEx, an organization with purpose and a passion for making the world a better place, has been an invaluable and dedicated partner to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for decades,” said Richard C. Shadyac Jr., President, and CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising and awareness organization for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

“The FedEx Purple Eagle program is one of a kind, inspiring our patient families who are part of the FedEx family and delighting supporters everywhere who see the named planes in rotation. We know Kenzie’s story, like the stories of all patients who join her in having a named aircraft, inspire hope in other kids who are being treated for pediatric cancer and other life-threatening diseases.”
