The Links Incorporated and The Links Foundation Incorporated awarded St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital a $1 million Legacy Grant in May 2018 to help advance sickle cell research, testing and treatment. The fifth Legacy Grant had a profound impact: “Because of this grant, St. Jude was able to work in three areas to apply its cutting-edge research and lifesaving work to help children of African descent, both domestically and internationally, navigate and overcome the effects of sickle cell disease (SCD).” - Kimberly Jeffries Leonard, Ph.D., President of The Links Incorporated
St. Jude founder Danny Thomas established the hospital in 1962 based on the conviction that “no child should die in the dawn of life” and that no child should be denied treatment at St. Jude based on race, religion or a family’s inability to pay. Today, St. Jude is a ray of hope for children fighting cancer, sickle cell disease and other life-threatening illnesses. Members, affiliates and friends of The Links Incorporated are invited to join in the fight against childhood cancer.
