BACKGROUND

INFORMATION:
         Country Cares for St. Jude Kids began in 1989 after Randy Owen, lead singer of the music group ALABAMA, met St. Jude founder Danny Thomas. Country Cares for St. Jude Kids is one of the most successful radio fundraising events in America. In fact, hundreds of radio stations across the country have helped raise more than $400 million for the life-saving work of St. Jude, and the St. Jude family of partner stations continues to expand.

Since opening 50 years ago, St. Jude has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80 percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted to children. It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life. Join that mission by visiting stjude.org or following us on facebook.com/stjude and twitter.com/stjude.
