September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month →

For the month of September, I’m donating my RSS sponsorship spots to St. Jude.

In May of 2009, my wife I watched helplessly as our six month old son was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor.

We didn’t have a lot of time to process the life-shattering news. Before we knew it, Josiah was undergoing surgery. A few weeks later, we were transferred to St. Jude Children’s research hospital here in Memphis, TN, where Josiah would battle through 18 months of chemotherapy, more operations, rehabilitative services and more.

St. Jude is a special place:

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. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.

Over the last six years, St. Jude has spent millions of dollars on our son, saving not only his life, but our family from financial ruin.

Today, Josiah is in first grade. He can run in the yard, play with his younger brother and sister and play an alarming number of practical jokes on people. All of this is because of St. Jude’s amazing work, backed by people like you.

Join us in this fight.
