Liberty and I were having a pretty doggone good Friday morning. We were on the air, talking about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and day two of our radiothon seemed to be going pretty well. Our day instantly became 100% better when I opened our Facebook inbox and saw a message from Emily. Her message said

My nephew just finished his treatments in November at Memphis and I don't know what our family would have done without St. Jude. He has officially been cancer free for 2 months thanks to St. Jude.

As you can imagine, we just HAD to know more. We were eventually able to get Robert's mom, Elizabeth, on the phone, and she was able to tell us more their experience at St. Jude. She paints an amazing picture of what it's like to be a parent of a St. Jude patient, walking through those doors for the first time. It's only been a couple months since his last treatment down in Memphis, and all of those emotions are still so fresh and raw - we are so grateful that she is able to give us all a glimpse into that time in their lives. Please notice that she not only is thankful to all the nurses and doctors and St. Jude staff - she is also thankful for anyone who is a Partner In Hope. She has seen, firsthand, how important Partners In Hope are to the success of St. Jude on a day-to-day basis.
