William Eugene Orren, otherwise known as Gene, Pop and Papa, passed away on Saturday, February 23rd, 2019 from complications following a stroke. Gene was known as quite the character, never met a stranger, had a kind heart and enjoyed helping and doing things for others. He also enjoyed children. In that spirit, in lieu of flowers for his memorial service, the family is suggesting a donation to St. Jude's.
Your generous donation and loving thoughts are a light of hope to St. Jude children and their families. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
It costs a lot for St. Jude to cure a child with cancer using the latest technologies and care. But because of donations, the price for patient families is $0. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything.
Many families come to St. Jude thinking it's like any other hospital. They expect to pay high fees to get their child the best care. They're overwhelmed with gratitude when they learn St. Jude works to save their child's life for free using world-class care.
Your donations make this possible and give parents hope.
