Danny Thomas, Founder of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Was a Man of Laughter Before Hope

The man who started St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, TN, was first a nightclub comedian who became a very successful television star and producer. His career spanned five decades. My grandparents and parents loved him.Take a look at the man who made millions laugh all over the world.

I actually found a full length episode of, ‘Make Room for Daddy.’ It proves, families REALLY haven’t changed that much. :-) Kids are STILL  smarter than us!!
