I am again walking to fight childhood cancer again this year - a tradition we started with my Mom five years ago after learning she was terminally ill herself. We chose to support St. Jude for many reasons but the following, having been the daughter of someone who went through 2 different cancer battles, stood out the most:
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from less than 20% when we first opened our doors to 80% today. 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.
- Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
I don't know of any other organization making such strides while offering so much support at the same time. This is why my family chooses to support St. Jude and I hope you will join us in whatever capacity you are able.
Join the walk for free and/or donate! No amount is too small and greatly appreciated!!
