It's the Research

  • Print

We spent a weekend in Memphis with St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital.

What blew me away.....

1 - The size of the place. Being funded completely by donations, it's way bigger than what I had expected. And yes, the people there really are "that" loving and kind.

2 - What the dream of ONE man has developed into. The idea of combining Doctors and Scientists together to find cures was shear genius.

3 - It's the research! Cure rates have skyrocketed over the years, thanks to the research done at St Jude's Childrens Research Hospital. This is not just for St. Jude patients, but for anyone being treated for cancer, anywhere.  I also listened to an amazing Doctor and scientist explain the leaps Gnome therapy has taken in the last decade alone. How genetics are aiding in curing disease. His excitement on what could be discovered in just the next ten years nearly knocked me out of my chair. When you help fund St. Jude, you're helping discover these cures! You're changing the world!

4 - Hunter Hayes showed up and that kid is crazy talented.
