7th Annual St. Jude Radiothon

It’s hard to believe that 95.3 The Bear and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital have been hanging out and raising money over the airwaves for 7 years!

At the time I am writing this, I imagine most of our listeners are snuggled tight in their beds. I should probably be there myself but tomorrow’s emotional ride to Memphis begins again. I’m not really going to Memphis but I’ll try my best to take us there through a mental magic!

Over the next two days, we’ll cry together, hopefully smile together and you’ll even probably curse at your speakers a few times because I made you cry and messed up your makeup while you were on your way to work. We’ll hear stories of triumph and defeat but through it all we’ll learn about a beacon of hope for so many people that stand in the heart of Memphis, TN.

Entertainer Danny Thomas started St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 1962 with one thought in mind, to treat and cure children suffering from all forms of cancer and never charge their families for any of it!

In 1962 when the hospital opened the most common form of childhood cancer, Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia had a 4% survival rate. Now, in 2013 there is a 94% survival rate! The doctors and researchers are working my friend; I’ve seen them first hand.

It’s our job to keep going what Danny started so many years ago. Over the next two days I’ll need your help to get the word out. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter, please re-post and re-Tweet our updates. Share my live blog and video blogs with your friends. This year, we step it up a notch.

I don’t know about you but as a parent I never want to hear those dreaded four words that too many parents hear, “Your child has cancer.” I want to help St. Jude find cures to stop this faceless disease and make sure “no child dies in the dawn of life.”

Become a Partner In Hope by visiting this website. Don’t put it off thinking you’ll do it sometime over the next few days, no! Do it now. Tell your friends to do it now. I’ve been a Partner In Hope for the last 5 years and it is truly one of the most rewarding things my family and I have ever done.
