Our patients and families have been through tough times. They start out with fear and uncertainty at the news their child has cancer or another life-threatening disease. Then, they're referred to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital for treatment. While on their journey, they speak of struggle, trust and hope.

Carry encouraging words of wisdom about life from St. Jude patients and supporters with you throughout your day, and share them with those you know and love. 


Save our images and share them with family and friends!
