Scarlet O’Conner From “Nashville” Teams Up With St Jude
Every year during our closing day at our annual St. Jude Country Cares Seminar we always have an amazing guest speaker. This year we were joined by Claire Bowen of ABC's hit "Nashville!" At first I just though she was there because of her relationship with show and country music. To our surprise she is a childhood cancer survivor!
She was diagnosed with a very rare form of cancer at a young age. She wasn't given much time to live. She underwent an experimental drug treatment, that her parents signed a waver that if, it killed her they weren't responsible.
She explained how because her parents were willing to take a chance on research and trials she and so many others are here today. That because of what it is done at St Jude Children's Research Hospital more and more children survive such deadly disease.
