You’ve probably heard that one child saved at St. Jude means thousands of children saved worldwide, but what exactly does that mean?
At St. Jude, we work just as hard to share our discoveries with the scientific community as we do in making them. Here are four ways we’re using our research to help children everywhere.
Four ways we share St. Jude research
The St. Jude Cure4Kids program
Cure4Kids, sponsored by Williams-Sonoma, Inc., gives doctors, scientists and researchers around the world an online portal to meet, collaborate and share information to help children everywhere. More than 40,000 health care professionals from 160 countries use our service.
Learning about the origins of childhood cancer
The Pediatric Cancer Genome Projectct, led by St. Jude and Washington University in St. Louis , aims to discover the genetic origins of childhood cancer so the findings can be used to help hospitals and institutions worldwide find cures.
Cancer survivorship research
With unique data gathered from cancer survivors, St. Jude is identifying the long-term effects of cancer therapy; finding better ways to predict health risks; and leading efforts to help survivors everywhere live longer, healthier lives.
St. Jude Cancer Education for Children Program
Using culturally sensitive and age-appropriate content, this program is designed to dispel common misconceptions about childhood cancer, promote healthy habits in children, and increase their overall interest in science and health careers.
These are just a few of the ways St. Jude is working to make sure that all children battling cancer and other life-threatening diseases are given the highest quality of care. Your support makes a difference to children everywhere.
