Rob Brown’s Fundraising Page for St. Jude on Team Big 98
Why funding matters & where it comes from?
Unlike other hospitals, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from generous donors. It costs $2 million per day to operate St. Jude, and public contributions provide 75 percent of the funds necessary to operate the hospital.
“Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.” While they accept insurance, many services provided by St. Jude have never been covered by insurance, and will not be in the future. In fact, only 12% of the money to operate the hospital comes from insurance recoveries and 10% comes from grants. This is vastly different than most other hospitals that can generate more than 90% of their revenues from insurance recoveries and other sources.

Children should be full of laughter and joy every day but unfortunately cancer has robbed this from some of them…. It breaks my heart to see a child struggling just to breathe, or cry in constant pain, or go hungry because eating makes them sick from the effects of life saving medicines…. These children didn’t ask to have cancer… but they do…. I wish I had the answer and a magical cure, but all I can do is raise awareness and money by begging people like YOU to donate money to St Jude so they can continue their quest to help these children live a better life, heel these children of their cancer, and some day rid the world of cancer altogether.
St. Jude has saved children’s and adult’s lives all around the world. They freely share their advancements in cancer treatment with hospitals and research centers around the world. When you donate to St. Jude, you are donating to help everyone with cancer and to fight cancer around the world.
I'm Raising Funds as a St. Jude Hero with Team Big 98 to support St. Jude's Lifesaving Mission of Finding Cures and Saving Children. I need Your Support to help reach the Fundraising Goals for the Kids of St. Jude.
Thank You so much for your kindness and generosity by your donation.
God Bless You and Your Family !!!
