Why I care so much about St. Jude:
- Many families can't afford hospital bills - and that should be the last thing a family who has a child with cancer should worry about. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food.
- St. Jude makes real progress: 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.
I support St. Jude year after year. Donate today to help me reach my goal. Even when the race is over, the fight to end childhood cancer continues. Thank you so much.
