St. Jude Young Professionals of Chicago unites Chicago’s leaders of tomorrow to help advance cures for pediatric cancer by engaging new donors, supporters and sponsors. We also provide young professionals with tools to evaluate their career goals, improve their professional image and create a lifelong and diverse professional network. Over the past 19 years, St. Jude Young Professionals of Chicago has raised more than $1,000,000 to support St. Jude patients and their families.
Gifts that give
Every gift you give makes a real impact in the lives of St. Jude kids and their families.
One pair of crutches
Crutches sized especially for children help them maneuver during treatment. Raising just $100 can help St. Jude provide the tools necessary for our young patients to stay mobile.
One red blood cell transfusion
Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions. The funds you raise can help St. Jude provide the best care and treatment for patients.
One hour of physical therapy
Physical therapy helps ensure every child treated here enjoys the highest quality of life possible.
Two days of oxygen
During treatment, St. Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing. Raising $750 can help cover the cost of two days of oxygen for a St. Jude patient.
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 fundraising goal of $1,000 can ensure that parents at Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, can obtain these essentials free of charge.
*When you make a donation using this information, your donation will be used to provide breakthrough research, treatment and cures.
