THERE’S NO PLACE LIKE ST. JUDE St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. As a cutting-edge research and treatment institution and respected charity, we are dedicated to support our lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® Treatments developed 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 freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, which means every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. And, 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. Unlike any other hospital, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from generous supporters. That is why St. Jude is committed to creating and maintaining mutually beneficial partnerships and providing unique opportunities and world-class support.
