Caitlin Wagner and Kevin O’Brien discussed St Jude Childrens Research Hospital, the first hospital to research and treat childhood cancer.  They told the story of its funding by actor/producer Danny Thomas and the ongoing commitment by volunteers and donors to fund the institution.   Research is open and shared and treatment is free, no parent ever gets a bill, including lodging and transportation. Kevin discussed his family’s experiences at the hospital when his daughter was diagnosed with a rare tumor and how they welcomed her and her mother, allowing her to stay a ‘kid’ despite her medical care.  They discussed the Childlife program that let her play and stay in school, and the residential facilities that look after the parents and siblings during their time there.   We discussed the ‘Country Cares for Kids’ campaign and the upcoming 92.5 XTU Radiothon, December 9th and 10th.    For more information about St Jude visit STJude.org
