First lady Michelle Obama is bringing some love to Memphis, TN on Wednesday in a planned visit to the city.
Obama’s scheduled visit to Memphis, TN includes a stop at the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
Our first lady, Michelle Obama, plans to have a visit with the St. Jude patients – children receiving treatment in the hospital.
Along with visiting the kids, Michelle Obama is also expected to take a tour of the state-of-the-art St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital which was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas in 1962.
