We believe children in Memphis and all over the world deserve the same chance at survival
In 1962, St. Jude founder Danny Thomas brought research and patient care under one roof and pioneered racial integration with the first fully integrated children's hospital in the south.
Since then, our patients have been receiving the customized care they need to treat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, no matter what barriers they may face.
