All my life I had heard about Danny Thomas founding St. Jude and his dream! When I moved to Memphis 23 years ago it all became so much more real- seeing the children in the grocery store and around town and touring the campus and watching the success percentages climb higher and higher! Some of the facts you may not not know are below.
Please read them and consider making a donation to help the Kids!!!
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.
