* 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 invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
* St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
I am also doing your Favorite Sports Team Challenge once again. If you haven't seen this before everyone who donates to St. Jude through my fundraising page gets to tell me their favorite Sports Team and whichever team is responsible for the most $'s donated, I wear that team's hat during the race. The University of Tennessee Volunteers were the winner the 1st year and the University of Memphis Tigers were the winners the past 2 years.
Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
