Dear friends and family,
I am reaching out to ask for your partnership in raising funds to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital's lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats, and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. No patient family ever pays for ANYTHING at St. Jude - housing, treatment or travel - which helps them keep their focus solely on getting their loved one better. St. Jude has a daily operating cost of $2.2 million, which means every dollar raised matters.
As many of you know, the work of the St. Jude Foundation is close to my heart. When I was in middle school I became friends a small-framed, blue-eyed boy with an easy smile named Rob Maher. Rob always made people feel at ease and found the humor in every situation. I still remember watching his dad give testimony to the gift that his son had been for the short time he was with us. Now as a parent, I cannot imagine losing either one of my children, and I cannot imagine the strain that a diagnosis of childhood cancer would have on our family. This is where St. Jude Foundation comes in!
How your donation helps:
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude 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. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
Thank you for your support! Together we can help St. Jude change the world.
