St. Jude's Campaign for a Cure

Jason and I have been supporting the work of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for the past few years. St. Jude’s is a non-profit organization with the mission to find cures for children with catastrophic illnesses through research and treatment. Today, nearly 5,000 children are being treated by the doctors and nurses at St. Jude’s. Children like Joshua Hooper, who was discovered to have neuroblastoma in October 2003. Thanks to St. Jude's, Joshua is still fighting.

We’ve volunteered to help the St. Jude Campaign for a Cure this year. At St. Jude, no family is ever turned away due to their inability to pay. We need money to save the lives of these precious children and to find more effective ways to cure childhood cancer. In the last three years, approximately 85% of the money St. Jude has raised has gone to the current or future needs of the hospital. But we need your help to continue this great work.

Would you consider supporting the work at St. Jude's? There are a variety of ways you can help:
  • You can donate online by clicking here. You can sign up to join the monthly giving program (only $19 a month can make a considerable difference in the life of a child) or you can make a one-time donation with a debit or credit card.
  • Sunny and I will be collecting one-time donations over the next three weeks. Please make checks payable to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. We will be mailing in all the donations we receive on Nov. 15th.
  • If you're more comfortable, you can mail your donation directly to St. Jude at P.O. Box 187, Memphis, TN 38101-0187. If you'd like more information before making your donation, visit or call 1 800 822 6344.
  • If you're unable to contribute financially, please continue to pray for these children suffering with cancer and their families.
This is a cause that Jason and I believe in and we solicit your help and your prayers. Every dollar we give can help make a difference in the lives of these children and their families.

I carry Joshua Hooper's picture in my wallet.
