It takes just seconds to learn that the experience for kids at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is different than at any other hospital. Inside, kids as young as just a few months old are getting treatment for cancer or other life-threatening illnesses, but the building and atmosphere is ... cheery.

The ABCs of Cancer exemplify what sets St. Jude apart from any other children's hospital. Children use the letters of the alphabet to express themselves. Some are sweet — "N" is for nurses, "Z" is for zapped — while others are poignant reminders of what's going on. Positivity, Wishing and Alive are three of our favorite letters. Thanks to donations from country music fans and artists, those words of support and positivity are more reality than not today.

In the last 30-plus years, country music has banded together to raise more than $800 million for St. Jude. This week, we're looking for more. With costs averaging more than $2 million a day, there's a constant need for money to assist with the treatment and research happening at St. Jude. The difference you're making helps get patients to the letter "R," hopefully forever.

For more than 30 years, the country music industry has raised nearly $1 billion for St. Jude, but the need is as pressing as ever. Taste of Country and other Townsquare Media properties have partnered for a two-day event (Feb. 4-5), having raised over $11 million previously.
