St. Jude National Outreach Director Marlo Thomas reacts to thunderous applause during dedication ceremonies for the Marlo Thomas Center for Global Education and Collaboration in November. Thomas was honored for her tireless efforts to raise awareness and funds for the research and treatment of childhood cancer.
Celebrating her achievements were family, friends and dignitaries, including (at right) former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The 38,000-square-foot center will be the epicenter of a campus facility designed to usher in a new era of research, education, collaboration, care and treatment of childhood cancer.
