I give thanks for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
I support St. Jude for a number of reasons.
-The first being that it such a great organization. Once a child has been referred to the hospital, the family doesn't have to pay for a thing. This allows them to focus on getting healthy and not worry about the finances.
-The second reason is that I am a member of Delta Delta Delta. TriDelta's philanthropy is children's cancer research and we have a national partnership with St Jude. While I was a collegiate member, we raised a lot of money to go to this worthy cause.
-The third reason is that my mom had cancer when I was seven years old. Thank goodness she has been cancer free for many years. However, with more research, my mom might not have had to go through a radical hysterectomy in her thirties. St. Jude is constantly doing research, not just for children, but for all ages. They don't keep this research all to themselves, but rather are distributing it so that as many people as possible can benefit from it.
These are just a few of the reasons I support St. Jude. Please help me reach my fundraising goal of $750. Even a dollar would help. Prayers for these brave children would also be a great help as well. Thank you :)
