Meet Luna

Luna has a beautiful smile and a light that shines everywhere she goes. When she started to feel sick and stopped acting like herself, her parents became concerned. Doctors in her hometown in Guatemala confirmed what her parents had feared: Luna had leukemia.

Luna was referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where doctors placed her on a treatment plan that included chemotherapy and a bone marrow transplant.

Meet Eduardo

When Eduardo was only 6 months old, his belly became noticeably swollen. His mom knew something was wrong. Eduardo’s parents took him to his local pediatrician in Dominican Republic, who performed an X-ray that revealed a mass the size of a pineapple. Eduardo’s family was devastated.

Eduardo and his family were referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital where he was diagnosed with liver cancer. Eduardo’s treatment plan included surgery to remove the mass and chemotherapy.

Our global impact

An estimated 400,000 children worldwide get cancer each year. In many low- to middle-income countries, 4 out of 5 will not survive largely due to the lack of access to quality care. At St. Jude, we believe that children all over the world deserve the same chance at survival and are working with doctors and institutions worldwide to make that dream a reality. Every child, everywhere.

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.

  2. One red blood cell transfusion

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

  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.

  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
