It costs $2.2 million dollars per day to run St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, and yet, families do not receive a bill. Because of this, St. Jude relies on donations from generous supporters. Your gift WILL make a difference for children and families who are facing childhood cancer.
In addition to life-saving treatment for cancer patients, your donation is used to fund programs that benefit children all over the world.
- St. Jude Global is working to improve cure rates in low- and middle-income countries by improving education for doctors and nurses, treatment options and plans, and much more. It is truly fascinating stuff: https://www.stjude.org/global.html
- St. Jude freely shares data and research discoveries with other institutions, so the work done on campus in Memphis has an impact all over the globe.
- The website I work on every day, Together — https://together.stjude.org/en-us/, provides information to patients and families regardless of where they are being treated. My team is working hard to create content for all families facing a catastrophic disease.
Thank you for your support. It means a lot to me, because it means you care about the kids at St. Jude. Running a half marathon is hard, but I'm glad to do it, and your support is extra encouragement to keep going.
