" no child shall go unheard"

After graduating at the age of 18 in 1929 Danny would move on to a life long career of radio, television, films, and music.

At this time in his life he was married to his Wife Rose Marie Mantell Thomas and had three children, Tony, Marlo, and Thomas. His family in the hospital for their ill son Thomas danny did not know how he was going to get them out the cost 75 dollers had to be paid so he found himself in the blessed church and he prayed as he put his last 7 dollers in the collection plate" if you will help someday I will build you a shirine," and the next day he was offered a commercial that paid 75 dollers. True to his word Mr. Thomas would go on to build and formate the St. Jude foundation, the hospital was desighned for people all people no matter what their circumstances. The hospital has grown and keeps on researchers doing all they can to help sick children.
