St. Jude stories from the Tri-State

Every dollar makes a difference*

  1. One red wagon

    Wagons are the preferred mode of travel through the halls of the hospital and around campus for our younger patients.

    Donate $100

  2. One red blood cell transfusion

    Children undergoing treatment for cancer and other life-threatening diseases often need transfusions.

    Donate $250

  3. One hour of physical therapy

    Physical therapy is provided to patients because children with life-threatening diseases like cancer may develop developmental, cognitive or physical impairments as a result of their illnesses and their treatments.

    Donate $500

  4. Parent necessities for 20 patient families

    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. At Tri Delta Place, our short-term housing facility, parents can obtain these essentials free of charge.

    Donate $1,000

  5. An ultrasound study for a St. Jude patient
