The National Medical Association is proud to support St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, where families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live. The passion and dedication of partners like the National Medical Association allow St. Jude to continue to lead the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
In 2023, the National Medical Association announced a partnership supporting St. Jude in a three-year journey to expand the knowledge of, and research for, those impacted by Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). This partnership will create new ways for the NMA to raise awareness about the work of St. Jude and, through such awareness, support advances in treatment and research for children everywhere.
When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was largely considered incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%, and we won't stop until no child dies from cancer.
St. Jude cares for some of the world’s sickest children regardless of their race, ethnicity, beliefs, or ability to pay. Our patients receive the customized care they need to treat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, no matter what barriers they may face.
