The story may be a day late, but the dollars sure aren't short.

On Thursday and Friday, the combined seven radio stations here at Townsquare Media in Lafayette put on the St. Jude Radiothon. And you, Acadiana, came through to the tune of $140,000 raised for the babies at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee.

That's a whole lot of money for things like chemo treatments all the way to fun stuff like no-mo chemo parties.

That slice of heaven on earth know as St. Jude Hospital continues to do some amazing things. Cure rates continue to improve and countless families are given more time with their children because of people like you.

So, from everyone here at Townsquare Media who was privileged to be a part of this amazing event, we simply say "thank you".

May God bless each and every one of you for becoming Partners In Hope and let's all continue to pray for all the children and families throughout the year who are affected by cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
