Marquette, MI – May 19, 2017 – We’re only $2,000 short of our goal so we’re calling on you! Come on Marquette, pick up the phone, dial in 361-WFXD and join today as a Partner in Hope.
We’ve been running the St. Jude Children’s Reseach Hopsital Radiothon on WFXD for five years now and have been so humbled by the amount that this community always gives back. Help us destroy our record high from last year, $10,439!
We’ve got Luke Noordyk taking over right now to bring the radiothon to a close at 7 PM. Join him now, listen to some heartfelt stories from St. Jude Patients and Parents. Take a moment in your car, or in your office, or in your home and just realize how lucky you are if your life hasn’t been touched by cancer like so many others in this world.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital shares all of their research with hospitals all throughout the world to ensure that every child gets the best medical attention, and with your help, patients at St. Jude will never receive the bill either.
Here’s some facts about what your donation really means and does:
- 4 Partners in Hope cover 12 no more chemo parties. By becoming a partner in hope, you are helping patients and families celebrate special milestones, such as completing chemotherapy treatment.
- 5 Partners in Hope helps to cover one month of meals for a St. Jude family. Thanks for our Partners in Hope, no family ever receives a bill for travel, treatment, housing or food.
- 6 Partners in Hope cover books, audiotapes and CDs for St. Jude patients. The Linda R. Hajar Family Resource Center at St. Jude provides families with access to medical literature and a library of books, audiotapes, CDs, magazines and general reference books.
- 8 Partners in Hope covers 8 red wagons. At St. Jude, red wagons are the preferred mode of travel through the halls of the hospital for the youngest patients.
- 14 Partners in Hope helps to host the annual St. Jude teen prom. The teen prom is coordinated by the St. Jude Child Life Program and is one of several events held throughout the year that provide patients with a sense of normalcy in their lives while they potentially miss important milestones at home during their treatment for cancer or other life-threatening illnesses.
