St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened its doors on February 4, 1962, based on Danny Thomas’ dream that “no child should die in the dawn of life.” Since then, they have 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, St. Jude’s 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.
And still today as when we opened our doors, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
