Vito Ruggiero was a big advocate for this cause and has asked that in lieu of flowers, donations be made to support St. Jude's lifesaving mission of finding cures for children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
How your donation helps:
- Thanks to donors like you, no family ever receives 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.
