I am very excited to have another opportunity to visit St. Jude Children’s Hospital. This week I will be attending their Fitness and Nutrition St. Jude Blog Tour. St. Jude is gearing up for their annual St. Jude Give Thanks. Walk. I cherish the moments of being able to meet many families who are full of hope and gratitude.
During my first visit to St. Jude all of my many blessings were put into perspective. In many ways I could relate to moms who were fighting for their children to have the best life has to offer, and the moms who were deeply concerned about the health of their dear little ones. I could also begin to appreciate the hope St. Jude provides by sharing much needed research which helps to make the lives of children around the world better.
It is an honor to be invited back as a St. Jude Blog Ambassador. I look forward to learning more about a hospital and all the work that goes into healing sick children worldwide.
Please follow my St. Jude journey this week! If you have any questions or would like to know something specific about St. Jude, leave a comment in the comment section or contact me on twitter.
