Remembering the Sparkle and Life of Emma Joy Ford [Video]

Today, as we raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, we are paying tribute to a young lady who changed the lives of everyone she encountered during her brief stay here on Earth.  In the words of her mom Amy, Emma Joy Ford "brought so much joy to everyone she knew."  And it's this joy for life that Emma inspired that brought Team Emma to the WBKR St. Jude family.  Team Emma has dedicated themselves to carrying on Emma's legacy by vowing to raise money for the fight against cancer and do it, tirelessly, in her honor.  For those of you who not having the chance to meet Emma, here's your chance.  Emma loved to dance.  She loved pink and sparkles.  And life.

Expedia Brings The World to St. Jude Patients [Video]

The WBKR Window World St. Jude Radiothon continues and we are spending the next two days sharing amazing stories of inspiration and hope from St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis.  I am always amazed, blown away, by the lengths St. Jude goes to in order to normalize the lives of children whose lives aren't normal at all.  And, in January, at our annual Country Cares conference, we were shown this video.  This amazing video that explains St. Jude's partnership with Expedia.  It's a partnership that brings world travel to children who are sometimes too sick to even go outside. This video simply brought me to tears.  It's beautiful.

WBKR Tribute to St. Jude Patient Chance: She Heard His Voice Today [Video]

Can you imagine losing a child and completely forgetting what he or she sounds like?  That happened to Jennifer and Jeff Tetrick after they lost their son to cancer.  As our 2017 St. Jude Radiothon continues, we're taking time to remember 11-year-old Chance Tetrick.  On, Feb 21, 2013, Chance was diagnosed with a rare form of leukemia. After his passing on August 4, 2014, his mother was afraid she was losing her memory of him and couldn't remember the sound of his voice, until she heard him on a St. Jude Radiothon . . . much like the radiothon we're having now on WBKR.  Chance's story always reminds us of the power of radio, the power of St. Jude and the power of community.  And we're honored to share his story (and our song inspired by him) with you.
