St. Jude helps ease the financial burden
Amelia's life turned upside down when an MRI revealed her son Juan suffered from a brain tumor. He underwent emergency surgery to remove the tumor. But since he did not have health insurance, Amelia worried she wouldn't be able to get him the care he needed.
Imagine a place where a critically ill child like Juan can receive the treatment needed to save his life and his family never receives a bill for anything — world-class care, travel, meals or housing. Thanks to donors like you, that place exists. It's St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
The majority of St. Jude funding comes from the public. That's why St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most — saving kids regardless of the financial situation. That means doctors and scientists spend less time on paperwork and more time on lifesaving care and uncovering the next big breakthrough.
"Without St. Jude, I don't think Juan would have gotten the treatment he needed," Amelia said. "We didn't worry about anything while we were here." St. Jude staff even reached out to Juan's little brother Javier at home to make sure he understood what was going on with his older brother.
Juan is now finished with treatment, and his latest set of scans showed no evidence of disease.
Your donations will ensure families continue to have this place of hope.
