Regardless of the duration or the cost of care, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food, so they can focus on helping their child live.


And we're working to help children worldwide.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate in the United States from 20% to more than 80% since we opened in 1962.

However, in many developing countries fewer than one in five children with cancer will live. St. Jude is working to change that.

By 2030, our goal is to cure at least 60% of children with six of the most common kinds of cancer worldwide.

We share the breakthroughs we make.  Every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
