Fifty years ago, Danny Thomas founded the St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in the hopes of curing children's cancer and other deadly diseases.

Danny wanted to open a hospital where children would be cared for regardless of race, religion or creed.  A hospital where families would never receive a bill for their child's treatment.

That hospital has become a shining light of hop for the world's sickest children - The St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

My Country 95.5 will be joining forces with many of your favorite country stars on May 17th and 18th as we show our support with our Country Cares For St. Jude Kids Radiothon.

The mission of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.  Danny's Dream was simple "No child should die in the dawn of life".

There are so many ways you can get involved and help the children battling cancer and other catastrophic illnesses.

Listen to My Country 95.5 during our radiothon from 6am to 6pm on Thursday and Friday of this week.  Make a pledge to become a partner in hope during our radiothon or be one of the first to help by clicking on the link.

With the help of friends like you, this amazing hospital will continue to save the lives of the innocent children who come through the doors of St. Jude.  Thank You for standing beside us in this effort!
