I can remember the first time I donated to St. Judes. I was 4 years old and the TV was on in the background nobody was really watching. I remember I walked by and I saw these children who looked sick but they had smiles on their faces. I asked my mom why there were so many sick children on the TV. We had a long conversation where my mom explained to me that all those children where sick with cancer and that St. Judes not only helped the children but they also helped their families so they didn't have to worry about medical bills and just focus on their children.
I remember I ran to get my Hello Kitty coin bank and gave it to my mom. I said I want to help! She told me that our family donated so I didn't need to. I remember I insisted so we pulled out my savings and my mom donated in my name. I still continue to support and so does my family. I am asking if you can please donate everything helps! I have set my goal low but I know we can reach that and more!
How your donation helps:
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on 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 in 1962. And we won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands of children.
Thank you for your support! Together we can help St. Jude change the world.
