St. Jude Radiothon Underway, Honors Memory of East Texas Girl

Coogler

In 2013, just before our annual KICKS 105 St Jude Radiothon, we ran the following story about a young girl from East Texas who was diagnosed with brain cancer during the Christmas holidays of 2012.  Even though she couldn’t make an in-studio visit with us, she provided the spark and beauty that kept us going through our event.  

In September of 2013, Sadie passed away…but she will always live on.  And she lives on through this year’s St. Jude Radiothon which is happening March 6th and 7th.  In honor of Sadie, a St Jude patient herself, we ask that you consider make a pledge of just $20 at month to help kids beat cancer.  You can call 1-800-411-9898 between 6 am and 7 pm, or can also donate online here.

On December 19th, 2012, it was nothing more than a trip to the mall to get some last minute Christmas shopping done. Within 24 hours, 8-year-old Sadie Coogler would be in surgery in Houston as a doctor removed one of several cancerous tumors in her brain.

While at the mall, Sadie began to have trouble getting her left leg to work and that’s when her mom knew something wasn’t right. You can read more of Sadie’s story here, but let’s flash forward.

 

Sadie is now a patient of St Jude Children’s Research Hospital receiving experimental treatment for Stage IV Glioblastoma Multiforme. She lives in Magnolia, Texas, but spends many days in Lufkin with her dad and extended family here. The cancer is aggressive and tough to treat, but through the work and research at St. Jude and the prayers and support of an ever-growing community, progress is being made.

Sadie is courageous with a beautiful smile. She is a 100% head-strong red-head who is battling, but just like thousands of other kids who are battling cancer, she needs your help. She wants to be well again. Her dad, James Coogler, wants to be able to have a positive and certain answer when his daughter asks “Dad, when is God going to let me be okay again?”
