Join us for the 12th annual If They Were Yours Golf Tournament, presented by Contractors For a Cause. Enjoy a day of golf, breakfast, lunch, cocktails, dinner and a visit by a St. Jude patient at Long Island's premier golf outing. Your contributions will help ensure that families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Platelet counts are among the tests doctors use to monitor patient health during treatment.
One meal card for a St. Jude family for one week
St. Jude provides patients and their families with meal cards for breakfast, lunch and dinner in Kay Kafe, the hospital’s cafeteria.
One platelet transfusion for a St. Jude patient
During chemotherapy, the platelet count of patients can drop to dangerously low levels so platelet transfusions are essential for treatment.
Two days of oxygen
During treatment, St. Jude patients may need oxygen to help their bodies function properly and aid in healing.
Two-thirds of the cost of one day of chemotherapy
Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from 20% when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80% today.
When you make a donation, your donation will be used to provide breakthrough research, treatment and cures.
