SHOOK™ Research is a proud supporter of St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and its lifesaving mission: Finding cures. Saving children.®
Your gift will help SHOOK™ Research reach its goal of raising $2 million for St. Jude by November 2021. $750,000 of the funds raised will fund two St. Jude clinical trials for research on medulloblastoma, a type of brain tumor.
St. Jude is leading the way the world treats, defeats and understands childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
St. Jude creates more clinical trials for cancer than any other children’s hospital. And St. Jude is unique in that the discoveries made at St. Jude are shared freely, so every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists can use that knowledge to save thousands more children around the world.
"I think St. Jude is the best place on the planet we can be. I totally trust we’re in the best place, with the people that are giving us the best care we can receive. It’s really just a blessing to be here, in the situation that we’re in.”
— St. Jude patient Aubree's mother, Kendra.
Aubree, who is 8, was diagnosed with medullablastoma in 2020.
