  2. One red blood cell transfusion

    Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions. Your gift can help St. Jude provide the best care and treatment for patients.

  3. One hour of physical therapy

    Physical therapy can help ensure every child treated here enjoys the highest quality of life possible.

  4. Two days of oxygen

    During treatment, St. Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing. Your gift can help cover the cost of two days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient.

  5. Patient family necessities for 20

    Parents who bring their children to St. Jude often leave home in a hurry and forget to pack day-to-day necessities, such as shampoos, razors, deodorant, toothbrushes and lotion. Your donation can help support Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, where parents can obtain these essentials free of charge.
