Every child deserves a chance to live

Supporters like you are giving children with cancer in Ukraine and around the world that chance.

Your support made it possible for St. Jude to establish the global partnerships we needed to mobilize the SAFER Ukraine effort, which brought hope to children and their families facing their darkest hour.

Thanks to generous donors, St. Jude was able to help organize the Convoy of Life to transport children from war-ravaged Ukraine to 21 countries for continued treatment, at no cost to families.

1,100 Ukrainian children with cancer were safely ushered to cancer centers in 21 countries.

 
 
 

Eight of those 1,100 were brought to St Jude — a 5,000-mile journey — for treatment. 

 
 
 
 

Because of you, our work continues

Beyond Ukraine, St. Jude has a global mission: we work closely with medical institutions in low- and middle-income countries around the world to improve survival rates for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

St. Jude is collaborating with the World Health Organization and global partners to cure at least 60% of children with the most common cancers worldwide by 2030.
