Summary

Finding Cures. Saving Children. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. St. Jude is where doctors send their toughest cases, because St. Jude has the world's best survival rates for the most aggressive forms of childhood cancers.Learn more at sjtude.org Follow us on facebook.com/stjude andtwitter.com/stjude.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to more than 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90% in the next decade. We won't stop until no child dies from cancer.

How will this project solve this problem?

Unlike any other hospital, the majority of funding for St. Jude comes from public contributions. 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. Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most - saving kids regardless of their financial situation.

Potential Long Term Impact

St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and around the world. St. Jude creates more clinical trials for cancer than any other children's hospital and turns laboratory discoveries into lifesaving treatments that benefit children - every day. Since St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
