Divinely or supremely favored; fortunate: to be blessed with a strong, healthy body; blessed with an ability to find friends.

I am very, very blessed. I have two beautiful children who are in excellent health. I have really no worries in the world when it comes to my children. But I also know that for every child that is healthy there is also one that is not healthy.I have not had to experience the heartbreak that goes along with a child getting sick and there not being an easy cure to it. Today and tomorrow (March 5 and 6) the Hudson Valley radio station WRWD 107.3FM has joined up with N&S Supply for the 20th annual St. Jude Radiothon. This is a truly remarkable event for a truly remarkable and inspirational place that is taking place across the country. There is no child that is turned away due to their parents not being able to afford medical care. It was at St. Jude that they found a way for a 75% cure rate of Sickle cell in children. St. Jude was founded by Danny Thomas and his daughter Marlo Thomas is still very much involved in this hospital that deals with childhood cancers. This is a charity that is very near and dear to me as I lost a friend to Leukemia when she was just 13 and had spent much of her life battling this disease. You can become a partner in hope for less than it cost for a cup of coffee a day. For $25 a month you can make a difference. If you are able to donate please click here and make it just a little easier on the parents and children that have to go to St. Jude. If you want to read more about St. Jude click here
