David and Andrea Gillespie

 

​After watching their nephew battle cancer, Andrea and David Gillespie wanted to do something to not only thank St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for everything they did for their family but in hopes that they can help other families in the same position.  David ran the Memphis marathon in 2015 as a St. Jude Hero and raised an incredible $14,000 in 2 weeks. In the Spring of 2017 Andrea joined David and "Team Garrett" raised $12,770 for St. Jude. "St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is important to us because of the work they did in helping our nephew Garrett fight a type of childhood cancer called retinoblastoma," said David. And also to help his family as they were able to comfort him and take care of him without having to worry about the financial stress that normally accompanies a disease like cancer.
