‘Your Child Has Cancer’— What Would You Do?

volunteersWith St. Jude a little over a week away we are looking forward to an amazing couple of days here at XL.  Some say it’s hard to listen… It’s hard to tune in and hear all the sad stories.  Well, that’s why we do it, why we work so hard to help raise as much money as possible for the kids of St. Jude. 

It is hard to listen to the stories, but I’m sure it’s even harder to live those stories.  As a new parent I have taken a new view of the St. Jude Radiothon.  Erin Phillips used to always ask me “what would you do if your future child was diagnosed with cancer?”  Before my little girl was born I would somewhat stumble to find the right answer.  Now I know I would do absolutely anything imaginable.  After looking into my child’s innocent eyes I know for a fact I would go to the ends of the earth to ensure she has the best life possible, to ensure she will live a long and beautiful life.

I know I probably sound all dramatic in what I’ve been writing.  The thing is, it’s true.  When It comes down to it, I think any parent would want to do everything possible to help their child.  That’s why we work so hard to help not only the kids of St. Jude, but the research that is done at St. Jude.

The money that I personally donate to St. Jude is an investment in my daughters future.  It’s an investment in the battle against cancer.  You might ask why St. Jude, why do you choose to donate to them?  St. Jude shares it’s information freely, they do not look to make millions of dollars off of their research.  They are pushing the boundaries of research and they are trying to eradicate cancer in children.Damm Baby, Lynken

The dedication the entire staff at St. Jude has is impressive.  From the researchers, to the doctors, to the St. Jude representatives who travel all around the country to help raise awareness for childhood cancer.  It’s not just a job for them, they are at war with cancer.  The best part about it… they are gaining ground in the battle.

I ask that you please tune in on March 7th and 8th.  Listen, cry, laugh, and think about what you would do if someone said… Your child has cancer.
