This is my 10th year runing the Mattoon to Peoria St. Jude run. There are days where I have doubt I can do it and then I see the faces of the St. Jude patients and their families past and present. They have no choice but to perserve and move through each and every day. The absolutely very least we can do is support them every way we can.
Thanks to generous donors:
- 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, and neither will I. Will you support me by making a donation?
