Guests were treated to musical entertainment by songwriters Brice Long, Dylan Altman and Phillip White, but the biggest impression was left by two young patients, 10-year-old Ella and 7-year-old Colin, who with help from their parents shared the gratitude they had for treatment received at St. Jude.
Ella is living with adrenocortical carcinoma; Colin is in remission from a malignant brain tumor.
The Memphis-based hospital is dedicated to the treatment and prevention of pediatric catastrophic diseases, and is known for never denying treatment regardless of a family’s ability to pay.
