I am a St. Jude Hero, but we all know the patients and families of St Jude are the real heroes. They smile through so many hard times and persevere through it all. Last year I was given the opportunity to meet Phoenix after my run. He stole my heart and fed me Jell-O! I gave him my finishers medal as he helped me make it through the race that day. He is now thriving and living his best life with his parents and brothers thanks to donors like you.
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 is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and they 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.
Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues.
