The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures, and means of prevention for pediatric diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or the family’s ability to pay.
St. Jude has treated children from all over the world and has helped push the overall childhood caner survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since they opened their doors more than 50 years ago.
They’re dedicated to providing the best care for patients and research that leads to cures so being on the cutting edge of medicine and research technology. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food-because all a family should have to worry about is helping their child live.
St. Jude is proud of the fact that 82 cents from every dollar goes to support the current and future needs of their mission to help save the lives of children from devastating diseases all around the world.
