Our team will be running in the St. Jude Memphis Marathon Race to help raise money in memory of my son, Chase Bailey, and many more gone (Alexa Cooke, Destini Jenkins, Carson Head) but not forgotten. We are also running to honor Addi Dunavent, CJ Fletcher, Zack Noe, Sam Routon and Denver Shuttlesworth.
Chase was diagnosed at 15 years old with Osteosarcoma, a rare form of bone cancer, on April 7, 2014 and his strong & courageous battle ended on August 18, 2015. Chase's journey can be found at http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/chasebailey.
Our family was in shock when I received the phone call that Chase had cancer and St. Jude was waiting on us. We quickly learned that St. Jude was our only hope for treatment of this horrific disease. St. Jude quickly became our new family as we trusted them for our every move with Chase's medical care. St. Jude became our place of comfort and hope. St. Jude was not able to cure Chase's cancer but they gave him the very best medical care and they gave him the best Quality of Life as he fought this terrible disease. St. Jude taught Chase and our entire family how to value life on a daily basis. St. Jude will always be part of the Bailey family. This is why I'm committed to raising funds for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. I'm ready to go the distance and so is teamchasebailey77 but we need your support.
I ask that as you think of Chase and all the other angels and warriors of childhood cancer, that you donate any amount your heart leads. No amount is too small. It costs $2 million a day to operate St. Jude. Did you know that 70% of the funds come from the public? That means your donation, no matter what the size, will help!

Please pray that all the children at St. Jude are cured of their cancer and can return home to live normal lives. Thank you for helping me support St. Jude!
Our team wants to do more than run. We want to help run St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
We're fundraising while we train for our race so we can make a difference in the lives of kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
