5 Top Reasons to Support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is doing so much to help provide the best future possible for the children battling deadly diseases throughout the world! To me, the reasons to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital are many! I’m very proud to be a part of this upcoming RADIOTHON and I want to encourage you with the Top 5 Reasons you should get involved…
First of all, becoming a “Partner in Hope” with St. Jude is just like a little insurance policy, it makes a lot of sense because if an important child in your life EVER becomes ill, you’re gonna want St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital will be there for your family or friends & we want to be sure the doors stay open with optimal care!
Second reason would be to advance our National medical community. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital does research second to NONE! Since Danny Thomas founded the hospital in 1962, a child with A.L.L., a form of childhood leukemia, had just about a 4% chance of survival. Today the survival rate for that same form of leukemia is at 94%!!! WOW, in just a short time, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital has really improved the lives of thousands of children. Plus they provide all their medical research & findings with anyone in the medical community so if a child here in Marquette, Michigan needs treatment & St. Jude can provide the protocol to our local hospital, there’s a chance that child could be treated right here!
Third reason, to send some miracles to children truly in need! We’ve all witnessed miracles in our own lives and many times it’s those little things we take for granted. The kids at St. Jude are counting on miracles – BIG ONES – and I certainly want to be a part of providing the care that can make their dreams become a reality.
Fourth reason to get involved is to follow in the foot steps of your FAVORITE Country Artists! The Country Music industry has been doing great things for St. Jude for the past 22 years & that’s because they see it as a worthwhile cause. I don’t believe so many of my favorite artists would possibly be wrong! This past January when I was able to visit Memphis during Country Cares, ALL these artists were there for the very same reason, to support the kids at St. Jude. The list gets pretty long but here goes… Justin Moore, The Band Perry, JaneDear Girls, Ronnie Dunn, Randy Owen, The Eli Young Band, Ashley Gearing, Katie Armiger, Frankie Ballard, LoCash Cowboys, Due West, Joey & Rory, Walker Hayes, Steve Holy, Josh Kelley, Jennette McCurdy, Jake Owen, Jessica Ridley, Sunny Sweeney & Randy Montana. See what I mean, that’s a LONG LIST of awesome artists that you hear everyday on 103.3 The Country Extreme.
To me, the top reason to become a “Partner in Hope” for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to give back! I know I’ve been given so much in life & that’s reason enough to pass it on! Donate today at www.wfxd.com or Tune in for our Radiothon May 5-6 & CALL 1-800-537-0063
