I am a St. Jude Hero! $5000 for 50th Birthday Celebration!
Did you know:
- 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. St. Jude won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
- 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.
$3 Help St. Jude provide pediatric isolation masks that help protect patients with compromised immune systems.
$10 Help provide a new toy for hospital play areas or recreational areas at St. Jude housing facilities.
$30 Help provide a St. Jude family with meals for one day in Kay Kafe, the St. Jude cafeteria.
$57 Help provide necessities for parents who may have hurriedly left home after their child’s diagnosis.
$100 Help provide a platelet count test for two patients. Platelet counts are among the tests doctors use to monitor patient health during treatment.
$250 Help provide a meal card for a St. Jude family for one week. St. Jude provides patients and their families with meal cards for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in Kay Kafe, the hospital’s cafeteria.
$500 Help provide one platelet transfusion. During chemotherapy, the platelet count of patients can drop to dangerously low levels so platelet transfusions are essential for treatment.
$750 Help provide two days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient. During treatment, St. Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing.
$1,000 Help cover about two-thirds of the cost of one day of chemotherapy. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80 percent today
Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
