I support St Jude because it's a selfless organization that cares about its patients. While at St Jude, families receive treatment, housing, food, and transportation and never see a bill. It is a hospital where kids can still be kids and play, keep up with their school work, and gain a better understanding of what is happening to them. St Jude also shares its research with hospitals around the world, so children everywhere can receive the best treatments and care. After having an opportunity to visit the hospital this summer, I can agree that St Jude is incredibly patient centered and does everything it can to make the kids feel as comfortable and happy as possible while at the hospital.
This year, I am the executive director of my school's Up til Dawn chapter! It has been a lot of work, but so worth it! I hope I can spread awareness of all the amazing things St Jude does and help make this an even bigger and more successful event at Marist!
