Our sister station 98.1 The Hawk is conducting their St Jude Radiothon today and tomorrow. St Jude is a cancer hospital in Memphis Tennessee that specializes in helping children and finding cures for cancer as well as other diseases. Kids from right here in the Binghamton area have been treated at St Jude, and kids from all around the world have also been treated there as well. If you have kids or grandkids, or even nieces and nephews, you never want to hear the news that they have cancer. We have come a long way in treating cancer. Many years ago, when someone was diagnosed with cancer, it was pretty much a death sentence. But research, like the incredible research they do at St. Jude, has helped find cures and treatments for many cancers.

Kids are supposed to be kids. They should be able to go to school and spend time having fun playing with friends. They shouldn't have to go through radiation and chemotherapy. But you can help cure them. Every donation helps with research, treatment, and it helps the families of the children dealing with cancer. St Jude never charges a family for treatment or hospitalization, and they don't charge the family for travel. One of the beautiful things about St. Jude, is that they put the family up in Nashville so they can be with their child while they fight for their life.

Check out the video below to see some of the great work that St Jude's does on a daily basis. Please find it in your heart to give whatever you can to help save children. You can make a donation by calling 1-800-372-4999.

Thank you!
