I never knew anything about St. Jude’s hospital. I used to even simply throw out their mailers thinking it was ‘ just another charity taking in profits’. I couldn’t haven’t been further from wrong....
A very close friend of my mine’s healthy, active little boy was diagnosed with an acute form of leukemia lymphoma. after many doctors and opinions, they went to St. Jude’s hospital.
Watching this young boy fight was inspirational. And the strength his parents and sisters showed to get through day by day was a true testament of strength.
They thank God and St. Jude’s hospital
St. Jude’s provides the best treatment and care while making life as easy for family as well.
I am lucky enough to know this family and celebrate 2 years of remission running together at the Memphis marathon weekend 12/7/2019
In addition, I will participate as a St. Jude Hero in the inaugural Memphis 70.3 Ironman on 10/3/19.
As I train for the 1.2-mile swim, 56-mile bike ride, 13.1-mile run, I am fundraising for the kids and families of St. Jude. With your donation, we can cross the finish line together becuase the money you donate % helps find a cure for childhood cancer.
Did you know:
- 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 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.
Donate today to help me reach my goal in honor of fighters and survivors.
