It's your race. It's their victory!
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, located in Memphis, TN; is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility, anywhere. Discoveries made there have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do more science, more quickly. Where doctors across the world send their toughest cases and most vulnerable patients. At St. Jude, no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance, are never asked to pay. St. Jude has built America's third largest health care charity, with a model that keeps the costs down and the funds flowing, so science never stops.
All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay. That is why each year 104-3 KCY Country holds the KCY Country Cares for St. Jude Kids Radiothon. It is because of YOU, the listener giving so generously, that 104-3 KCY Country has been able to pass along $819,132.71 to St. Jude over the years. However, the need for help doesn't stop at the end of the radiothon.
