We would like to give a special thank you to all of our special guests this morning and thank all of YOU for becoming Partners in Hope for our St. Jude RadioThon. It is a very special 2 days for us and despite the snow it's been such a wonderful day!
We first introduced you to Jeanna and Ella Dreamer four years ago during WBKR's St. Jude Radiothon. And, you'll likely recall, they were the inspirations behind our 2012 St. Jude song "Dreamer." Last year, we decided to put faces with the names for you and make an official video for our original song. Check this out! It's moving, powerful and yet more testament as to why you should become a St. Jude Partner-In-Hope.

This is our song dedicated to Chance, his mom, Jennifer and dad Jeff Tetrick.

We say it every year, and it's completely true... Thursday and Friday are our two most favorite work days of each year. It's time for our WBKR St. Jude Radiothon.
