St. Jude's Night

I just wanted to say thanks to the few friends of ours that showed up at Chili's tonight for St. Jude's Night. I know some of you had things going on tonight and couldn't make it and thats OK too. At least I know you remembered. It think they had a wonderful turn out. At least it was pretty crowded while we were there. Chili's is such a big donor to St. Jude's. They even recently opened the Chili's care center. This newest building on campus will be home to the Radiological Sciences department, the Bone Marrow Transplant inpatient unit, the Pediatric Brain Tumor Consortium, and new research labs for Pathology, Pharmaceutical Sciences and Virology. And not only are they researching childhood cancer, but they are also doing bone marrow transplants for patients with severe Osteogenesis Imperfecta which is the brittle bone disease that runs in our family that has affected my Dad, sister, and my 3 nieces which in turn affects our whole family. So once again, thanks for supporting St. Jude's!
