Here at Scripps Radio Knoxville, our community is our family. So we're taking time every month on all 4 Scripps Radio Knoxville stations to spotlight local charitable causes that serve our community's needs with our 'Giving Light Initiative'. Each chosen non-profit cause receives $10,000 worth of promotional and commercial support to highlight their charity and the selfless work they do to help our friends and neighbors in East Tennessee.
This month's charity is Julia Barbara Foundation
The Julia Barbara Foundation is fighting to cure DIPG (brain stem tumors) so that in the future DIPG children will not lose their smiles and families will no longer watch their children die a horrible death. DIPG (diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma) normally occurs in children, is non hereditary, fast growing and currently incurable. Further, brain tumors are now the leading cause of cancer related deaths in children ages 1-19. Please join our fight to save children!
If this is something you're interested in for your charity. Let us know!
