Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
When Major and two of his older siblings, Jasmine and Ja-Kasha, arrive at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®, they greet everyone they see like family. The siblings have sickle cell disease, a group of inherited blood disorders that prevent the normal flow of blood in the body. They’ve been coming to St. Jude for treatment since they were babies. St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, such as sickle cell disease. Major’s treatment at St. Jude includes hydroxyurea.
Every $100 ticket helps end childhood cancer for kids like Major.
