Why we are fundraising for St. Jude
It all started with a single 12ft tall skelly for Ashley. After moving from Illinois as Nurse Practitioner to work the Covid ICU, she has a lot of hard days. I thought it would be best to get her mind off all the stress and let her smile when she gets home any way possible. We love Halloween, and of course this idea naturally popped into my head - comically large skeletons it is.
With her being in the medical field and us owning a local family restaurant, St. Jude's means a lot to both of us. Both of our careers have been impacted by families that have suffered from the illnesses treated at St. Jude.
We are lucky to live in a community who understands this, and most of our neighbors do as well. Although, some behind us don't see it that way. So, with a heavy heart we are asking you to donate to this charity. Please drive by our house or Catch 22 Gastropub to get our QR code to donate directly to St. Jude.
Thanks to donors like you, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Treatments developed at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened over 50 years ago.
Join us! Together we can help St. Jude change the world.
