Thank you for attending the St. Jude Spirit of the Dream, a gathering to celebrate the achievements of African-Americans in building the St. Jude legacy during Black History Month. This year, we presented the Spirit of the Dream Award to the late Bernal Smith II, who upheld Dr. King's dream and championed the lifesaving mission of St. Jude and its founder, Danny Thomas. This award is presented as Memphis recognizes the 50th anniversary of the loss of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

 Your contributions from this event help continue the St. Jude mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®

 
 
20 to 80

With your support

 
 

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 50 years ago.
