Description

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Our purpose is clear: Finding cures. Saving children.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - so they can focus on helping their child live.

By sharing our breakthroughs and exchanging ideas openly, we’re inspiring more collaboration between doctors and researchers worldwide, and, as a result, providing more lifesaving treatments for children everywhere.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened in 1962.

Because most of our funding comes from individual supporters, we have the freedom to focus on what matters most: Finding cures. Saving children.
