Cancer has taken many events from us, but not family traditions. When you move to housing at St. Jude, you become family with everyone else's family.
St. Jude families share holiday traditions together at Target House
No matter where you’re from, we all have things that we cherish and we pass down from generation to generation, including recipes that have a special place in our heart. One of the most inspiring places to share our stories is around a table.
Whether it’s with the family you’re born into or the family you make, gathering round a table for a meal has a way of bringing out traditions and memories that help us remember what’s most important: spending time with the people we love.
In 1999, Target created Target House at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital – it is a free home away from home for families whose kids are receiving extended care, and recently where Chip and Joanna Gaines redesigned the family dining room.
This holiday season, Target’s Executive Vice President and Chief External Engagement Officer Laysha Ward shared a home-cooked meal with four extraordinary families from very different backgrounds who were brought together by the shared experience of having their children treated at St. Jude. Watch their inspiring video, and hear what their traditions mean to them.
