Popular WBKR St. Jude Patient Ella Gets Own Website

"I don't understand why God chose me to have to fight the battle against cancer.  But I do know, that once I survive, I will try my hardest to make sure that no child ever has to do this again."  That quote comes directly from Ella Dreamer, a St. Jude patient who is battling a rare and deadly form of cancer known as adrenalcorticolcarcinoma.  If you have tuned into the WBKR/Poole's Pharmacy Care St. Jude Radiothon the last two years, you have heard Ella's story, told by her mother Jeanna, who has become a staple of our broadcasts and annual fundraising mission.  The Dreamers continue their battle against childhood cancer and continue to inspire everyone who knows or encounters them with their strength.  The latest development in this story . . . Ella continues to survive and she has taken her story to the Internet.
