WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – All the tickets for the sixth annual St. Jude Dream Home giveaway are sold out. The $1.3 million raised will go to children fighting cancer at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – whose families will never see a bill for their treatment, lodging, or transportation.
Last week, we met Jessie, a lively two-year-old from Augusta who is proud to tell you her new status: cancer-free!
Jessie complained of stomachaches last summer. Local doctors found tumors in her liver. Jessie was flow by helicopter to Memphis for treatment at St. Jude.
“You never know when something like this is going to happen to you. If it does and when it does happen to those unfortunate families, every dollar that is raised is going to keep St. Jude rolling,” her father, Tanner tells KSN.
Jessie was treated at St. Jude before heading to St. Louis for a liver transplant. Her family now calls her transplant scar her “shark bite.”
“What did the shark put there?” Jessie’s mom, Annie, asks in a video.
“A new liver,” the toddler responds.
On behalf of everyone at KSN, we are excited to once again share with you the opportunity to help in the fight against childhood cancer!
