Mission Statement

The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.


Description

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering
work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive
Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Founded by late entertainer Danny Thomas
and based in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and
medical communities around the world. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center
where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied
treatment because of the family's inability to pay. St. Jude is financially supported by
ALSAC, its fundraising organization. For more information, please visit www.stjude.org.
