By providing excellent care for patients and their families, as well as world-class research, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is helping to rewrite the story of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude takes some of the toughest cases, providing hope when others can't.
In the battle against cancer, St. Jude patients fight back with courage, like the heroes they are.
Now, thanks to virtual reality, we can celebrate the bravery of these kids at the scale it deserves.
Welcome to the St. Jude Hall of Heroes
As part of VR for Good, St. Jude has partnered with Facebook to create a virtual reality experience, available on Oculus Quest and Rift VR headsets, that celebrates the stories of survivors of childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases — real patients who fought for their lives.
The St. Jude Hall of Heroes is set on floating islands, each island with statues 60 feet tall, and each statue unique, representing a St. Jude patient and their story.
As you explore the islands, you'll be able to walk up to the statues and hear directly from patients and their families.
You'll learn how playing the guitar helped Caleb take his mind of the side effects of chemo, why Matthew is called the Mayor of St. Jude, and more.
The St. Jude Hall of Heroes premieres Dec. 3.
In the meantime, help us save more children, and make more of these stories possible.
