As an important member of our St. Jude family, your health and safety, as well as that of our patients, volunteers and staff is at the forefront of everything we do. It is with this abundance of caution and respect for everyone, we’ve decided to postpone the Sixth Annual Let’s Upstage Cancer for St. Jude event, presented by TicketSmarter.

When Danny Thomas founded St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in 1962, many thought it couldn’t be done. “They said it was impossible. They said it was a task which would break my heart,” he said. But Danny lived to see his little hospital become an international beacon of hope for families – everywhere. Today, St. Jude leads the way the world understands, treats and defeats pediatric cancer and other catastrophic childhood diseases. Danny’s passion and inspiring leadership reminds us that together, nothing is impossible.

We’re working hard to craft something special for when we can come back together in celebration and look forward to sharing details with you very soon!
In the meantime, we extend our heartfelt thoughts for your well-being and thank you for your continued support---because together with friends like you, St. Jude can achieve the impossible.
