Bruce Heads to Memphis for the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids 2013 Seminar [PHOTOS]
I recently took my 7th trip to Memphis to tour St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Each time I go, I learn something new about this amazing place, as well as re-energize myself to raise funds for them. It takes $1.8 million a day to run St. Jude, and a majority of that cost is received through donations.
No child or family ever receives a bill from St. Jude. Once a child is accepted as a patient, the only focus is on curing their illness. As I watched patients and their parents walk through the halls of the hospital, I saw no tears or frowns. Only smiles and determination. That is noteworthy, considering at some point the parents heard the words “Your child has cancer.”
Below are some pictures taken during this year’s trip. No patients or families could be photographed due to privacy laws.
