Since we opened in 1962, our mission has been to find cures for kids with cancer and other life-threatening diseases, regardless of race, ethnicity, beliefs or a family’s ability to pay.
In the years ahead, an estimated 89% of the funds necessary to sustain and grow St. Jude must be raised from generous donors. This is why supporters are so important in fulfilling the promise of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas, who believed that "no child should die in the dawn of life."
Thanks to our generous supporters, we're leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
That means investing in patient care, research and technologies that keep us on the leading edge. We're focusing on tackling the hardest-to-treat cancers, increasing survival rates and reaching more children with cancer worldwide. Read more.
September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month
One in five children diagnosed with cancer in the U.S. won’t survive. St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. With your support, we’ll be one step closer to that day. One cure closer. One child closer. Let’s cure childhood cancer. Together.
