It is this type of commitment from all of our donors, supporters and volunteers — from each and every one of you — that truly makes it possible for St. Jude to exist. Your support helped St. Jude open in 1962, and your support keeps the research and treatment of life-threatening childhood diseases going at St. Jude today.
At St. Jude we take that support seriously. We promise that we will do everything possible to advance the research — and new and better treatments — so that we can continue to push survival rates for childhood cancer higher and higher, until we reach 100%.
And we promise that families will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. Families should focus on helping their children beat these diseases, not on how to pay the medical bills.
And we take steps every day to make sure we keep those promises. That’s why we have begun a multi-billion dollar expansion that will build new research and clinical care facilities, as well as housing for more patients.
St. Jude just announced we will be breaking ground this spring on a $412 million advanced research center which will propel St. Jude for the long term, accommodating growth for the next 20 years and beyond. We are also embarking on a global initiative to impact more children fighting cancer around the world.
Thank you for being a part of this journey — for your commitment, your dedication and your generosity — to further a mission like no other: Finding cures. Saving children.®
