St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is one of my favorite places in the world. It is a place of hope for children and their families that one day, childhood cancer and other catastrophic diseases will be a thing of the past. St. Jude makes sure that patients have everything they need to fulfill their dreams!

On Thursday night, during the NFL Draft, one patient will get to experience an amazing dream come true!

St. Jude patient Markell will be announcing a first round pick in New York City! How exciting is that?!? Markell recently got to hang out with draft hopefuls Matt Barkley (USC) and Barrett Jones (Alabama) at the hospital in Memphis.

I always watch the draft, but this year I'll be cheering for Markell! The draft airs Thursday, April 25th at 7:00pm on ESPN.
