Join us in the fight against childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases by becoming a Partner in Hope during our annual St. Jude Radiothon this Thursday and Friday!


Since opening its doors in 1964, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee has made tremendous strides in the areas of research and treatment of childhood cancers, using the motto coined by their founder, the late actor Danny Thomas, “No Child Should Die in the Dawn of Life” to provide constant inspiration for their around the clock work.

During our annual Radiothon Thursday and Friday, you’ll hear several stories of hope from families, patients, and employees of St. Jude. Some will have happy endings, others will not, and those may be hard to digest, but I strongly encourage you to listen closely to the words you hear, then pick up the phone and call 1-800-372-4999 to join in the fight so there are more happy endings.

New this year, you can also donate by texting the word GIVE to the number 785833.

We want to send a BIG thank you to the sponsors for this year's Radiothon:

And as always, a very special THANK YOU  to YOU for being a part of this event and becoming a Partner In Hope.

Over the past 53 years, thanks to the tireless dedication of doctors from all over the world working around the clock, St. Jude has increased the survival rate of lymphoblastic leukemia from a lowly four percent to an astounding 94-percent! And that’s just one of many highlights being produced inside the labs at St. Jude.

What makes those results even more incredible is that it’s all being done through public donations coming from Partners in Hope like me and hopefully you.
