St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won't stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Local hospitals are vital to the health of children in every community. But St. Jude Children's Research Hospital(r) has a unique mission - to generate the knowledge that will save the lives of hundreds of thousands of children stricken with cancer and other catastrophic diseases throughout the nation and around the world.
We remain committed to our founder Danny Thomas' dream that some day no child will die in the dawn of life. We urge you to help us by becoming a part of our great mission of finding cures and saving children.
