Worldwide approximately 1 in 5 children will survive childhood cancer. St. Jude and the World Health Organization are joining forces to raise the global survival rate from 20 percent to 60 percent by 2030, because no child — anywhere — should die from cancer.

Our global impact

Finding cures. Saving children.® Everywhere.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 60 years ago.

Despite that progress, four in five children with cancer in low- and middle-income countries will not survive.

The emphasis on the global impact of St. Jude is critical to saving children. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer, no matter where they live.

Flags of St. Jude researchers and doctors hang in a walkway.

Guests walk under flags that represent the countries of St. Jude doctors and researchers.


Every dollar makes a difference*

  1. Platelet count for a St. Jude patient

    Platelet counts are among the tests that doctors use to monitor patient health during treatment.

  2. One red wagon

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

  3. One red blood cell transfusion

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

  5. 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.
