The Colorful ABCs of Cancer Give Hope to St. Jude Patients
It takes just seconds to learn that the experience for kids at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is different than at any other hospital. Inside, kids as young as just a few months old are getting treatment for cancer or other life-threatening illnesses, but the building and atmosphere are... cheery.
What are the ABCs of Cancer?
The ABCs of Cancer exemplifies what sets St. Jude apart from any other children's hospital. Children use the letters of the alphabet to express themselves. Some are sweet — "N" is for nurses, "Z" is for zapped — while others are poignant reminders of what's going on. Positivity, Wishing, and Alive are three of our favorite letters. Thanks to donations from country music fans and artists, those words of support and positivity are more real than not today.
In the last 30-plus years, country music has banded together to raise more than $800 million for St. Jude. This week, we're looking for more. With costs averaging more than $2 million a day, there's a constant need for money to assist with the treatment and research happening at St. Jude. The difference you're making helps get patients to the letter "R," hopefully forever.
