St. Jude's Give Thanks Walk in Richmond VA

St. Jude's Give Thanks Walk in Richmond VA

St. Jude's Give Thanks Walk in Richmond VAI have participated in many charity walks over the years, such as the Susan G. Komen walk for Breast Cancer Awareness and with the CJ's Thumbs Up Foundation for the Amazing Raise. This year, I will be joining in the St. Jude's Give Thanks Walk in Richmond VA held on Saturday, November 22nd at 9am. However, this year it is personal.

About a month ago one of my best friends called and informed me her 20 month old daughter had just been diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer, AML Leukemia. I immediately wanted to help, but what can you do? My friend gave me a few house related tasks that I could assist them with since that is my specialty, but that somehow didn't seem like enough. 

I was able to visit my friends only once in the hospital as just days after my visit they received the news that they were being transferred to St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital. What a blessing! St. Jude's sent an Angel Flight and off they went to Memphis, TN. 

St. Jude's Offers Families Financial Peace of Mind

Not only does St. Jude's offer world class care to sick children, but they do so at no expense to families. If you have ever visited an emergency room for something little you know how expensive the bills can be. Now imagine the bills when fighting for your life against cancer. At St. Jude's the only thing parents need to worry about is getting their child healthy again. This only happens because of the generous donations of others. The donations from me. From You.

While I anxiously thought of ways to help, the family members of my friends discovered the St. Jude's Give Thanks Walk in Richmond VA and quickly formed a team. I was in! This was a way I could help because helping St. Jude helps my friends!

Donating to the St. Jude's Give Thanks Walk in Richmond VA

Why donate to St. Jude? For one, you are helping to save a child's life with the benefit of a tax write off. Secondly, it is a way to pay-it-forward. Most importantly, your child doesn't have cancer today and you never know what tomorrow will bring. I pray you never need the services of a place like St. Jude but if you do, you will understand the importance of a donation. My friends were a carefree little family on a Sunday and by Monday their lives were turned upside down.
