I'm staying up 'til dawn to raise awareness for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. You can help me reach my fundraising goal for the kids of St. Jude, who are battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Everyday parents of children at St. Jude lose countless hours of sleep worrying about if their children will be ok and how they are going to get through this horrible time in their life, the one thing they don't have to worry about is the bill. The only way we can make sure parents never have to worry about how to pay for their child's treatment is through your donations so please consider donating using the guides below, every little bit goes a long way towards alleviating just some of the worries for parents in this terrible situation.
Here are some ways your donation could be used to support the patients of St. Jude:
- $10 can help provide a new toy for hospital play areas or recreational areas at St. Jude housing facilities.
- $30 can help provide a St. Jude family with meals for one day in the Kay Kafe, the St. Jude cafeteria.
- $100 can help provide a pair of pediatric crutches, sized especially for children help them maneuver during treatment.
- $250 can help provide one red blood cell transfusion; children undergoing treatment for cancer and other deadly diseases often need transfusions.
When you make a donation using this information, your donation will be used to provide breakthrough research, treatment and cures. Items listed here are representative of services and supplies that are part of the treatment and care of children at St. Jude. The cost of each item or service is an approximation, and will vary based on actual costs incurred and individual patient needs. Your donation will be used for the general operating needs of St. Jude, where no family ever receives a bill for treatment, lodging, travel or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Thank you for your support. Every dollar makes a difference!
