St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer

It is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, and we are so lucky to have one of the leading research hospitals in the world here in Memphis, working every day to find a cure.

Already, treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to now 80 percent!

Rick Shadyac is CEO of ALSAC, the fundraising arm of St. Jude.

He's here with Jenny, who has a child at St. Jude.
