Your support helps kids like Imani

Imani was in hospice after surgery for brain cancer. She was just 5 weeks old. Then came a phone conversation with an oncologist at St. Jude, who said, “I’ve treated this before, and some people have been cured.”

At St. Jude, Imani started chemotherapy. Slowly but surely, she began to thrive. By March, the tumor had shrunk enough for a long and complicated surgery that removed it entirely. After several more months of chemotherapy, Imani is out of treatment and back at home, growing bigger and stronger every day.


With a gift from the gift shop of a charity, like St. Jude, showing someone you care comes with the bonus of helping those in need. Your impact is real. St. Jude has helped push childhood cancer survival rates from 20% to more than 80% since we opened more than 50 years ago.
