Fighting to live can be rough at any stage of life, but when it comes to kids who just want to ride their bicycle, innocent children may find it difficult to understand why they are spending so much time inside a hospital.

If there is any silver lining, however, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is making new strides each day, but it doesn't come without a price.  That price is $1.8 Million per day - just to operate the facility.  Multiply that number by 365 days, and...well, you get the idea.

Did you know that St. Jude never turns away a child.  It doesn't matter if the parents are under financial hardship, or are with limited insurance means.  In the eyes of St. Jude, every child is worth saving, so when they say Never, they mean NEVER!

Founded by the great Danny Thomas 51 years ago, it goes without saying that St. Jude needs our support, and the amount you can afford to donate is not important.  In this case, it is the thought that counts.

Townsquare Media - Lufkin, and our sister station, KYKS 105, are once again broadcasting a two day live radioathon until 7 p.m. tonight (Thursday, May 2), and again tomorrow (Friday, May 3) from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m.  Please pick up the phone NOW to give what you can.  The number is 1-800-345-4673, and when you call in, let them know you are a Q107 listener.

On behalf of St. Jude, thank you Classic Rockers, for all of your support in advance.
