MEMPHIS, Tenn., August 30, 2018 – A group of digital influencers from across the country will partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for Childhood Cancer Awareness Month in September, engaging with their millions of followers to help build awareness and help end childhood cancer.
These official digital ambassadors for the St. Jude Childhood Cancer Awareness Month campaign represent communities from Los Angeles to Washington, D.C. While they cover such diverse topics as travel, lifestyle, family and fitness, they are united by the mission of St. Jude: Finding cures. Saving children®. Many of them also will be taking part in St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer events in their local communities.
Now that I’ve explained everything to you, I’m taking my first order of business to the streets. Yup! On Saturday, September 29th My team Mimi’s Cutie’s will do the St. Jude Walk/Run to End Childhood Cancer in DC. This is where you come in, I can’t do this alone. I need your help. You can join my team and or donate towards my goal. You can join my team in person or virtually. See what they did there? They removed all excuses to support such a worthy cause. I hate asking folks for stuff, but I want to make a difference in as many kid’s lives as possible. If you only have $1 to donate, that is a dollar more towards a treatment, a wagon, a no-mo chemo party, the list is endless.
Here are a few reasons why St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is worth it:
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% when we first opened our doors to 80% today. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Their purpose is clear: Finding cures. Saving children.
- St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands of more children.
- The support of donors gives St. Jude the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving children regardless of their financial situation.

I just attended an event at CHOA’s Aflac Cancer Center. I was amazed at the optimism of the children who are undergoing cancer treatments.
They are incredibly strong, it is sad and inspiring at the same time. It reminds me to fight harder and do more with my everyday task.
I’ve donated to St. Jude for as long as I can remember. I love the work they do for the young children and their families. Such a blessing during their difficult times.
Thank you for supporting, I love that they continue to thrive and push themselves harder for these kids.
Way to go Mimi ! I love St. Jude and all they do to help families in their time of need as well as the children. They chose a great group of ladies. I’ve actually met Lynette before at a conference. I know that you all will do a wonderful job bringing awareness to such a great organization.
Thanks, Leslie. That is so cool, we plan to crush it.
You go girl! That’s awesome that you are giving your time for such a worthy cause. Congrats and hope you finish well!
Thanks, I’m going to give it all I’ve got.
I love St Jude and donate to them often. My Amazon Smile account is linked to them when I shop online and donate a portion of my purchase to them. This is a great cause!
That is a great way to show your support. Especially if you use your Amazon account as much as I do.
I absolutely love St. Jude’s and what they mean to families during their time of need and beyond. Kudos to you for partnering with them. I was nosy in your comments didn’t know I could connect my amazin account, will be sure to check that out.
Nothing wrong with poking around here, it is a safe space. That Amazon linking was a great tip.
Congratulations! I can’t wait to read all about this experience!
Thanks, I can’t wait to share.
