This weekend I had the privilege to tour St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, TN. If you didn't know, we partner with St. Jude and host a radiothon for two days to raise money for the kids.
First of all, I want to say THANK YOU to our "Partners In Hope." I got to see what your money is going to and it is absolutely inspiring. There's a lot I'd love to share with you, but I'm going to stick to the one moment that turned me into a puddle: the moment I met Addie Paige.
Addie Paige is one of the superheroes I met over the weekend. When she was sixteen, she found out that she had Acute Myeloid Leukemia. During her treatment at St. Jude, music therapy helped her pull through. She wrote a song called "I Hold On" to bring her strength. Fun fact: I have the words "i hold on" tattooed on my wrist because it's my favorite Dierks song and means a lot to me.
Sweet Addie Paige gave more meaning to my tattoo. Listen to her song below.
These kids are SO inspiring. I hope you have the opportunity to tour the magical place that is St. Jude Children's Research Hospital one day.
You can join the movement too! Become a Partner in Hope here plus get the "This Shirt Saves Lives" tee that you see your favorite country artists supporting.
