ESA Hearts St. Jude

Register Now


The ESA Hearts St. Jude campaign encourages Epsilon Sigma Alpha collegiate chapters across the country to join together to support the lifesaving work of St. Jude.

Your support helps ensure families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Since partnering with St. Jude in 1972, ESA members have raised more than $176 million in cash and pledges and volunteered thousands of hours for St. Jude projects.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. Thanks to your help, St. Jude doctors and scientists continue their important work of finding cures and saving children.

How can your ESA chapter participate?

  1. Register now. With your fundraising page, you can send emails to friends and family, asking them to support St. Jude.

Corban, age 2,

When 9-month-old Corban was found to suffer from rhabdomyosarcoma, an aggressive soft tissue tumor, his parents, Jessi and Brett, turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for his treatment and care.

Corban’s family is grateful for everything St. Jude has provided for him. At St. Jude, no family ever pays for treatment. “I can’t imagine what the cost of Corban’s care has been,” Jessi said. “Aside from treatment, he’s had physical and speech therapies, visits with Child Life specialists and a nutritionist. And we don’t have to worry about any of it.”

Corban will soon celebrate his second birthday at St. Jude. Although Jessi and Brett miss family back home, they know they’re surrounded by people who love and care for Corban. For them, St. Jude feels like home. “Corban took his first steps here,” Jessi said. “Now he’s running and climbing and jumping.”
