Like many kids, Chase Eaden of Evansville was fun-loving little boy who didn't have a care in the world. Then one day, while sitting on the floor, he started to call out for his mother, Kimberly, telling her it felt like he was falling. A trip to the pediatrician led to a diagnosis no parent wants to hear. Chase had a brain tumor.

Unable to arrange travel to St. Jude because of the distance from Evansville to Memphis, and the fact she had another child at home to care for, Kimberly took Chase to Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis for treatment. However, Chase's treatment protocol came from St. Jude since they freely share all of their discoveries with hospitals around the world like Riley.

Take a listen to Kim tell Chance's story, and how important she feels it is for you to support St. Jude.
