St. Jude

So the story goes something like this...Danny Thomas was a struggling entertainer with a new wife and young child. Desperate and near the end of his money, he prayed to St. Jude, the patron saint of desperate cases and lost causes. He asked for a sign and vowed that he would build a shrine to St. Jude if he were shown the way. Within a year, he had found his way and began building a career in show business. Overtime he did not forget that promise to St. Jude. His idea was to build a hospital dedicated to children. Today we now have St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. It is a huge campus and the attention to detail is amazing. I received a VIP tour from Sara Massengill, Heroes Program Director. It was interesting to spend some time with her. In true Dimick fashion, I picked her brain. Asking questions about the who and why that lead her to St. Jude. All together my experience in Memphis was pretty special. I finally got to see the Hospital and walked the famous Beale Street.
