For nearly 30 years, Country Radio & St. Jude have teamed up nationally to raise over $365 million dollars.
In New Orleans, 101.1 WNOE and our sister station, Amen 940 WYLD, have been part of this partnership for over a decade, helping to raise over $1,500,000 to date.
January 24-25, 101.1 WNOE and Amen 940 WYLD will join forces with St. Jude and focus on the goal of raising over $250,000.
Here’s why we are so committed:
St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.
In 2009, Parents magazine named St. Jude the No. 1 pediatric cancer care hospital in the country based on the magazine’s survey of more than 75 children’s hospitals nationwide.
St. Jude is the first institution established for the sole purpose of conducting basic and clinical research and treatment into catastrophic childhood diseases, mainly cancer.
St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to 80 percent today.
St. Jude was the first institution to produce a cure for sickle cell disease with a bone marrow transplant and has one of the largest pediatric sickle cell disease programs in the country.
