Why St. Jude?

no family pays

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. 

St. Jude is saving lives

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. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90%, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. 

Treating children worldwide

St. Jude freely 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

Meet St. Jude patient Kenlie

St. Jude patient Kenlie

St. Jude patient Kenlie

Kenlie is irrepressible. She’s a vivacious, outgoing girl who hasn’t let a years-long battle with cancer get her down. Kenlie was found to have synovial sarcoma, a cancer of the soft tissue and joints, when she was just a baby. She’s been a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital since she was 2 years old.

I love St. Jude because they never give up, and they fight along with us.

St. Jude patient Kenlie

Kenlie’s treatment over the years has included surgery, brachytherapy, radiation therapy, knee replacement surgery, chemotherapy, a recent amputation and much physical therapy. “We’re getting the best care at St. Jude,” said her mom, Jennifer. “They take care of you as a family. We have a whole team here, and they’re all about Kenlie. That makes me so happy.”

“I love St. Jude because they never give up, and they fight along with us,” said Kenlie. This 9-year-old girl is always dancing — she couldn’t have music playing during radiation therapy, because music made it impossible for her to keep still during treatments. Kenlie also loves playing around on the piano and is planning to take piano lessons.
