Christian radio hosts Erica Campbell and Darlene McCoy
promote St. Jude‘s children’s cancer research

Christians are here on earth to be the hands and feet of Jesus, offering love and help to those in

Two top Christian radio personalities, Erica Campbell and Darlene McCoy are fulfilling that calling
by helping promote
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, which pioneers research and treatments
for kids with cancer.

“St. Jude offers hope,” said Campbell of Get Up! Mornings with Erica Campbell, who shared her
thoughts on the state-of-the-art treatment facility in a video published by St. Jude. “They carry the
load and they give love, and support in probably the worst times in some families’ lives,” she
