  • For The Record...

    Posted by Kim Brixton

    Toby Keith is denying reports he refused to sign a guitar for St Jude's. His rep says, “If it was asked of us for Toby to sign something for St. Jude or any other LEGITIMATE charity, we always do so. For them to think that Toby would disregard a great charity like St. Jude when he has his own foundation that supports and has the same goals is just stupid.”

  • Every Child Should Have A Future

    Posted by Kim Brixton

    It only takes a moment for the world to come to a halt. That moment when you hear those four words: "Your child has cancer."

    At St. Jude Children's Research 
    , we believe that all kids deserve a chance to grow up and experience a lifetime of moments.

    That's why, for 50 years, we have dedicated ourselves to finding cures to deadly diseases like cancer that threaten the lives of children. We share these discoveries freely with doctors and scientists everywhere, all while ensuring that no family ever pays St. Jude for anything.

    At St. Jude, our goal is for every child to have a future as full of promise as it was the moment before their parents heard the words "your child has cancer." You can help.
