Mission Statement

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has treated children from all over the world and research discoveries are freely shared with the worldwide medical community. At St. Jude, children are treated regardless of a family's inability to pay so fundraising is essential to continuing St. Jude's groundbreaking research and treatment.

Description

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas, is one of the world's premier centers for the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Children from all 50 states and from around the world have come through the doors of St. Jude for treatment, and thousands more around the world have benefited from the research conducted at St. Jude - research shared freely with the global medical community. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance. No child is denied treatment because of a family's inability to pay.
