Amsterdam Native and St. Jude Patient Christian Gizara to Appear With Marlo Thomas on Dec. 8 'Larry King Live' to Educate Viewers About Life-Saving Work of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital(R)
Date:11/30/2007

Appearance part of Fourth Annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving(R) Campaign

AMSTERDAM, N.Y., Nov. 28 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Twelve-year-old Christian Gizara, Amsterdam native and St. Jude patient, will appear alongside St. Jude National Outreach Director Marlo Thomas during the December 8th episode of "Larry King Live." This appearance, which can be seen Saturday, December 8th at 9 p.m. ET on CNN, is one in a series of media activities in conjunction with the fourth annual St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign. Christian, who was diagnosed with ependymoma, a brain tumor, in 2003 and is now cancer-free, will share his story on-air and help educate viewers about the life-saving work of St. Jude and how they can help by participating in the Thanks and Giving campaign.

This is the third year for long-time St. Jude supporter, Larry King, to invite Marlo Thomas to share stories of hope, like Christian's, with his viewers during Thanks and Giving. Christian's story is a unique one -- it began in October 2003 when Christian developed flu-like symptoms. His parents took him to see their pediatrician, who suggested rest and fluids. But three days later, Christian woke up vomiting and crying that his head hurt "really bad." His doctor sent him for an MRI and lab work at the local children's hospital, where Christian was diagnosed with ependymoma, a brain tumor. Two days after his diagnosis, Christian underwent a nine-hour brain surgery to remove the tumor. Knowing he needed ongoing treatment, his parents searched the Internet, where they discovered St. Jude. Tune in Saturday, December 8th to hear the rest of Christian's story, how St. Jude saved his life and see how he's doing today.

This holiday season, everyone can help kids like Christian by supporting the Thanks and Giving campaign. The campaign encourages customers to "Give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not." Shoppers will see the St. Jude Thanks and Giving mag
