St. Jude Sunday of Hope is a program that allows congregations across the country to unite in support of St. Jude. Since 2008, we have been blessed to have more than 600 churches participate and raise more than $2.1 million. Through St. Jude Sunday of Hope, your congregation can choose one Sunday to show your support to help treat and end childhood diseases like cancer and sickle cell. By joining the program, you are uniting as a community of believers to give the gift of life and hope to children around the world.

Help be the answer to a parent's prayer

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because we believe all they should worry about is helping their child live. 

St. Jude shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
