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. 

Today, as we continue our St. Jude Radiothon, we ask that you join us in our fight against childhood cancer.  Please call 1-800-201-8883 to become a St. Jude Partner-in-Hope.  It's $20 per month for 12 months on a credit or debit card.
