Refer a Patient

If you are a patient or a family member, please go to "For Patients and Families."

St. Jude offers exceptional care to eligible children and young adults with newly diagnosed, untreated or suspected diseases we treat. These include:

  • pediatric cancer
  • HIV infections
  • certain hematologic diseases
  • certain genetic diseases

We also consider previously treated patients who have received treatment elsewhere when based on clinical trial eligibility for ongoing studies, relapse studies, bone marrow transplantation protocols or Phase I-II studies

We accept most patients based on their ability to enroll in an open clinical trial

Why St. Jude


One unique benefit of St. Jude treatment is our long-term care support for you and your patient. We are here to help every child to survive. We are also here to help every childhood cancer survivor live a full, happy and healthy life.

St. Jude offers follow-up and support care to referring physicians and their patients for years after remission. We also research late effects of cancer and its treatment. This research improves the quality of life of survivors.
