WLOX Editorial: Help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital help children battle cancer

SOUTH MISSISSIPPI (WLOX) - Wouldn't it be great if there was a place dedicated to curing sick children for free because the money came from people like you? Well there is such a place. It is St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. At St. Jude medical bills are always paid, but this does not happen easily.

It takes money to operate St. Jude to both care for and do research to find cures for children. You have an opportunity to help.

St. Jude is giving away a 2,600 square foot home valued at approximately $430,000. It is being built right now on Oak Shadows drive in West Gulfport with some beach views.

Tickets are on sale now for $100. Call the St. Jude Dream Home ticket hotline 1-800-206-2263 to purchase your ticket. You could win the Dream Home.  Whether you win or not the children win, because the money goes to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

That's our opinion, we would like to hear yours. Email your thoughts to editorials@wlox.com.
