“It’s a great event that we created to share with our friends – and most importantly – for a great cause – St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.” said Scott Medlock and Robby Krieger. St. Jude ensures families never receive a bill for treatment at their hospital in Memphis, Tenn., travel, housing or food. Medlock and Krieger visited the hospital and met with patients – and described their time as “simply incredible,” and “one of the most positive experiences we have ever had.”
St. Jude is where doctors from all 50 states and around the world send their toughest cases because it has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers.
