As the premier publication of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Promise magazine helps educate about the innovative scientific research and excellent medical care happening at St. Jude. The only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children, St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and cures childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
New research proves that children and adults with cancer often have different mutated genes driving their diseases. This reinforces the need for pediatric-specific precision therapies.
