Undefeated: WBKR Tribute to St. Jude Patient Markell [Video]

Markell's story is one the most tragic, yet inspiring ones you will ever hear.  Markell was a St. Jude patient who battled cancer six different times and he did so behind the strength of people cheering him at curve in the road and step of the way.  Jaclyn and I had the honor of meeting Markell, talking with him, getting to know him and being inspired by him.  And our hearts absolutely broke in two last year when Markell's body, so broken down by this journey, finally surrendered.  But to this day, we are Team Markell.  All day.  Every day.  And here's our tribute to a young man who absolutely changed lives while losing his own.

Remembering Lane Goodwin: WBKR’s Thumbs Up Tribute [Video]

Here at WBKR, we are spending the next two days trying to strike out childhood cancer.  And every time we have our St. Jude Radiothon, we are always reminded of and inspired by Lane Goodwin, the young McLean County, Kentucky boy who, for many folks in the tristate, became THE face of childhood cancer.  We all remember putting our "Thumbs Up" and joining Lane in his fight against the monster.  Today, that fight continues here at WBKR.  And we're honoring Lane and asking you to put YOUR thumbs up.  We have work to do so that "no child should die in the dawn of life."
