March brought a donation to St Jude’s Children’s hospital, which was created in 1962 by Founder and advocate, Danny Thomas, and is now continued to be supported by his daughter, actress Marlo Thomas. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of their founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
Some of the ways you can help, outside of donating money, include sending a card to a child/patient of St Judes. We have let our team know of this simple, free way to make a big impact in the lives of patients and families going through unimaginably difficult times.
