These next two days are two of the most important days we ever broadcast here at Q98.5.

To put it simply, this past year has SUCKED thanks to COVID-19. Our world has been upended by the pandemic and many people are struggling. We're all struggling mentally, some physically, and many of us are struggling financially too.

I know becoming a Partner In Hope with St. Jude at $19 a month is a big ask right now, BUT, I want you to think about something for a second.

Think about how all this quarantining and isolation has made you feel. Think about how it has effected your children.

Now I want you to think about how this is exactly how St. Jude families feel too, plus they have the added fear of cancer trying to take their child's life.

No family, no person, should have to suffer through that kind of worry, and St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is doing everything they can to make it stop, but they desperately need our help.

Rockford, this is our chance as a community to band together and say 1 out of 5 children losing their fight to cancer is not acceptable.

Rockford, let's help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital find a cure to cancer in these next two days. All it takes is one click here, or one call to 1-800-372-4999 to make it happen. Heck, you can even text "Q98" to 626262 to make your donation as well. 

Please become a Partner In Hope with St. Jude right now by pledging $19 a month on your credit or debit card. You'll get the awesome, brand new We Won't Stop t-shirt,  but more importantly, you will help contribute to the amazing advancements they make every single day at St. Jude. Oh, and you will be saving children and providing hope to scared families that desperately need it.

Is there really a more important phone call you need to make today? I don't think so.
