You will also experience a St. Jude presentation featuring rare live auction packages and a Give to Live presentation hosted by celebrity emcees.

Milestones are an important part of every child’s life, but they’re especially meaningful for kids fighting cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Cue the Confetti

In many cases, chemotherapy regimens at St. Jude can last two to three years. We love nothing more than to be able to throw a patient a No More Chemo party to mark the end of their chemotherapy treatment.

To celebrate, staff sing a special "No More Chemo" song before showering our patients in confetti. And of course, there's cake!

See what your gift can do.
