Call To Action: Support St. Jude

St. Jude will lead a national movement to raise awareness and funds to help end childhood cancer. Please  join their efforts this September to end childhood cancer once and for all.

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.

It costs a lot for St. Jude to cure a child with cancer using the latest technologies and care. But because of people like you, the price for patient families is $0. Many families come to St. Jude thinking it’s like any other hospital. They expect to pay high fees to get their child the best care. They’re overwhelmed with gratitude when they learn we’ll work to save their child’s life for free using world-class care.  Supporters give parents that incredible feeling of hope, hope that is reflected in these quotes from some of our parents:

“They provide your lodging, your travel expenses, your meals. You have 100 percent of your attention on your child. You don’t worry about anything else.”
Dinah, mother of Kayla, 5 years old, Alabama, medulloblastoma

“St. Jude accepts children from all over the world. We haven’t paid a penny, but we still receive the best treatment anyone could give us.”
Quimverly, mother of Ian, 6 years old, Mexico, medulloblastoma

“We never had to worry about paying for Reese’s treatment or paying for a place to stay or for groceries while we were there.”
Marilyn, mother of Reese, age 2, anaplastic ependymoma

They make sure your donations go where they are needed the most, so all a family has to focus on is helping their child live. Get involved. Help Them here.

St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Unlike any other hospital, St. Jude relies on funding from individual contributors to help support its mission of finding cures to save children battling cancer. Because of donations, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
