About St. Jude
There is no place on earth like St. Jude. Families never get a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. St. Jude treats the world’s sickest children with the best care.
St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago.
The majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors so that, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most – saving kids regardless of their financial situation. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
