Thank you for supporting a great cause! 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.
“No child should die in the dawn of life. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened its doors on February 4, 1962, based on Danny’s dream that “no child should die in the dawn of life.” Since then, we’ve made incredible strides in childhood cancer research. We’ve helped improve the survival rate of childhood cancer from 20% to 80%. And ALL, the disease with a virtual death sentence in 1962, now has a survival rate of 94 percent.Today, we’re a world leader in developing new, improved treatments for children with cancer, and we create more clinical trials for cancer than any other children’s hospital. We freely share those breakthroughs, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.”
