Seriously ill children tug at my heartstrings, as does the inspirational message of St. Jude’s children’s research hospital.
St. Jude’s mission is to “advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder, Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.”
Unlike other hospitals, the majority of St. Jude’s funding comes from individual contributions, which ensure that families never receive a bill.
Last year during the Christmas holiday, I visited the St. Jude website. After reading some of the inspiring stories about the brave children helped by St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, and shedding some tears, I became a donor and supporter.
And now I’m asking for your help. It won’t cost you anything more than a few minutes of your time.
