We’ve partnered up with St. Jude’s Children Research Hospital to match all donations given. Together we can double our efforts and help those in need.
Giving back to St. Judes is a very strategic and personal choice for me.
When I was 10-years-old, my mother found a lump under my chin after baseball practice and took me to my local hospital right away. I quickly had surgery to remove the lymph node that had swollen to prevent any other situations. After the surgery, however, my doctor recommended we see a professional at St. Jude’s in case the lymph node had metastasized and spread to other parts of my body before the procedure.
Although my parents, friends, teammates, and church family worried about my health, I did not think much of it due to my young age. I never thought something bad could happen. My parents worried about affording such care but St. Jude’s covered it all.
I was a patient at St. Jude’s for nine months between visits from my hometown of West Monroe, LA and the hospital. Thankfully, the lymph node was a false alarm and I did not have cancer but the experience was enough to make me want to give back to such a wonderful hospital.
I will always remember the friends I made on my floor and their struggles. Their faces and progress are forever ingrained in my mind.
Any donations we give together will help families in need during the worst of circumstances. We here at 4D applaud the service of this non-profit hospital. Together our giving can and will make a difference.
