Let's cure childhood cancer.
Did you know?
- Every 30 minutes, a child in the U.S. is diagnosed with cancer, and a family must hear what one St. Jude parent describes as the worst sentence in the world: "Your child has cancer."
- One in five of those children won’t survive. Because of generous St. Jude supporters, families can have hope. At. St. Jude, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family's ability to pay.
- Cancer is the leading cause of death by disease past infancy for U.S. children. St. Jude treats children from all 50 states and around the world.

Every dollar makes a difference
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since we opened more than 50 years ago. And we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all they should worry about is helping their child live.
St. Jude freely shares its groundbreaking discoveries, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.
