Thank you for your donation to St. Jude through my Memphis Marathon fundraising effort. And thank you for all of your kindness and love over these last few difficult months for our family.
I really believe that St. Jude is the right place for your money to help kids with cancer. St. Jude helps all types of kids with all types of cancer, regardless of a family’s ability to pay. St. Jude is also leading several types of research into new gene therapies and other types of new cancer treatments. We are very hopeful that one of these new types of treatment will be available to help Charlie if and when he needs it.
In some ways, we are very lucky. We have excellent health insurance and we live in a big city close to OHSU and Doernbecher Children’s Hospital, which provide some of the best cancer care available. Other families do not have these advantages, and your donation goes to help them in lots of different ways. So again, thank you.
Be tender and laugh,
