Thank You Idaho For Helping St. Jude
Wow. What an incredible eye opening experience it has been to learn more about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and to witness the generosity and love that Idaho and the Treasure Valley has. Thank you form the bottom of my heart for caring enough to give and keep the life saving work going at St. Jude. In just 2 days and in the year of this crazy pandemic we were able to raise $92,532 to help no child die from cancer. That is astonishing and I am overwhelmed with gratitude for your generosity.
While I have worked along side stations that have broadcast a St. Jude radiothon, this is my first time doing one from the DJ booth. It is hard to describe how moving it has been. From having the opportunity to have a conversation with a local Eagle mother named Tiffany about her son Jack's Journey. Jack is still with us today because of being treated at St. Jude. There are thousands of stories like Jacks, of children being saved and families being beyond grateful at the level of treatment, care and compassion at St. Jude.
At the same time we heard a lot of stores of the children who gave it everything they could but sadly didn't win the battle. St. Jude's We Wont Stop campaign is so powerful because they are going to keep pushing, learning and researching until NO child dies from cancer. They are well on their way and thanks to the help and support of people like you and me they will keep fighting. Thank you for everyone that contributed.
