St. Jude has a $12.9 billion, six-year strategic plan.

Read more about the largest strategic plan in our 60-year history, which grants $200 million in global access to cancer medicines.

It currently costs more than $2 billion to run St. Jude each year, and that cost is estimated to grow to $2.2 billion by 2027. Care doesn't end when treatment is finished. St. Jude follows patients for life, learning from yesterday's patients to improve care and outcomes for tomorrow.

Around the world, an estimated 400,000 children will get cancer each year, and yet childhood cancer research is consistently underfunded. Less than 4% of the U.S. federal budget for cancer research is dedicated to childhood cancer.
