"The work St. Jude does is tremendous, and the company I'm with---FedEx---is one of their big supporters. I thought I was really giving back by volunteering there. I thought I was helping, but it turned out that I got far more than I gave. Seeing those little children with such strength and faith, smiling and playing and happy in spite of the fact that they were very, very sick---it put my problems into perspective.”
