I will be climbing Mount Kilimanjaro in Febuary this year, and it will likely be one of the hardest treks I'll ever do. I'm ready. This is something I've wanted to for a long time, and while I'm at it I would love to be able to do some good and raise some funds for St. Jude.
For those who don't know, St. Jude is a childrens research hospital with the mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Thanks to the generosity of donors like you:
- St. Jude never turns a child away from treatment for financial reasons and their family never receives a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
- 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.
