Watch Marlo and our patients on the TODAY show

Marlo Thomas with St. Jude patients
Today Show

Hear the stories from Marlo Thomas and St. Jude patients from NBC's TODAY show, and get inspired this holiday season to make a difference in the lives of children everywhere.

Each day from November 19 to 23, we shared a story of triumph — a story that is possible because of people like you.

These inspiring tales of courage and strength kicked off the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign. Created in 2004 by Marlo, Terre and Tony Thomas — children of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas — the St. Jude Thanks and Giving campaign has grown into an annual holiday tradition, thanks to tremendous public support.

During this season of Thanks and Giving, many of America’s most-loved companies make it easy for you to give thanks for the healthy kids in your life, and give to those who are not. Support St. Jude with your holiday shopping today.
