Marlo Thomas with St. Jude patients

Each day from November 23 to 27, we will share a story of triumph —a story that is possible because of people like you. These inspiring tales of courage and strength kick off the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign. Created in 2004 by Marlo, Terre and Tony Thomas — children of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas — the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign has grown into an annual holiday tradition, thanks to tremendous public support.

Please watch and share the TODAY show videos below.
