Why I Support St. Jude
We have supported this event for several years never imagining that we would one day become a St Jude family. Our son, Michael, received radiation therapy last year for his pituitary tumor. St Jude has one of the few proton therapy machines in the US, and it is their fundraising that makes it possible. It was such a blessing to be able to receive treatment at home. Our experience with St Jude has been life changing.
Can I count on your donation to help me reach my goal?
When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent.
And because St. Jude shares the breakthroughs it makes, every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Thank you for supporting me and the lifesaving work happening at St. Jude today. Let’s cure childhood cancer. Together.
