BILOXI, MS (WLOX) -

$2.2 million. 

That's how much it costs to run the St. Jude Children's Hospital every single day. Using the latest research and medicine, doctors and staff fight life-threatening pediatric diseases like cancer, blood disorders or even sickle cell disease. Some children are faced with treatments that can cost more than $400,000. 

But, there's another important dollar amount associated with the hospital: $0.

That's how much the approximately 7,800 families who visit St. Jude each year pay for treatment. Why? because the majority of the costs to run the hospitals are donated by people just like you.

While there are many different ways to give to the hospital, including payroll deductions, the annual marathon, or evening dedicating birthdays and weddings, WLOX News Now has partnered with St. Jude for a chance for you to not only give back, but a chance to win big.
