It's that time of year again when everyone in the Tri-State rallies together to help raise money for children battling childhood cancer with the St. Jude Country Cares Radiothon.

The staff at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee has one goal, and that's to do everything in their power to bring an end to childhood cancers and other life-threatening illnesses. This goal is something that they have gotten closer and closer to achieving since the facility opened its doors over 60 years ago in 1962. Over the course of those six decades, they've made unbelievable strides in understanding how a variety of different cancers behave and how to treat them, saving the lives of countless children along the way. Of course, that goal takes funding, and support from folks like you by becoming a Partner in Hope during our annual St. Jude Radiothon with Hyundai of Evansville.

2024 St. Jude Radiothon Set for February 1st and 2nd

Like past radiothons, over the course of the two days, you'll hear stories of hope from families, patients, and employees of St. Jude. Some will have happy endings, others will not. But regardless of how the stories end, they will all have a common theme —  that because of the research and treatment protocols at St. Jude, families were given more time with each other. Time they may not have had if it weren't for St. Jude. What's special about St. Jude is that no family has to pay a single dime for anything. Not for medical bills, housing while there, food, nothing. All they have to do is be there for each other. This isn't possible without funding from generous donors. That's why we encourage you to listen closely and use them as inspiration for becoming a Partner in Hope to help create fewer sad endings and more happy ones.


By making the commitment of a monthly $19 donation, St. Jude will send you a "This Shirt Saves Lives" t-shirt being modeled below by a few St. Jude supporters you probably recognize as their way of saying, "Thanks!"
