Alabama’s Randy Owen and his wife, Kelly, catch their first glimpse of a St. Jude patient family room dedicated in their honor in the hospital’s Kay Research and Care Center.
The dedication celebrated the 30th anniversary of the Country Cares for St. Jude Kids® radio program. Since its inception by Owen, Country Cares has raised more than $800 million through radiothons with more than 200 radio station partners and through other country music industry events.
“The most important thing I’ll ever do, apart from being a father and a husband, is helping children at St. Jude,” said the Country Music Hall of Famer. “Over the past 30 years, I’ve watched children at St. Jude grow up to be happy, healthy adults. This room dedication shows that the country music industry has made a true impact, and I’m glad I could be part of that.”
