ST JUDE CHILDRENS RESEARCH HOSPITAL INC
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. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago.
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 because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Unlike any other hospital, the majority of our funding comes from individual contributions. Thanks to generous donors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude.
