Worldwide approximately 1 in 5 children will survive childhood cancer. St. Jude and the World Health Organization are joining forces to raise the global survival rate from 20 percent to 60 percent by 2030, because no child — anywhere — should die from cancer.

Our global impact

Finding cures. Saving children.® Everywhere.

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 60 years ago.

Despite that progress, four in five children with cancer in low- and middle-income countries will not survive.

The emphasis on the global impact of St. Jude is critical to saving children. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer, no matter where they live.

Flags of St. Jude researchers and doctors hang in a walkway.

Guests walk under flags that represent the countries of St. Jude doctors and researchers.
