 About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

Founded in 1962 by performer and philanthropist Danny Thomas, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way  the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. As the first comprehensive cancer center dedicated solely to children, St. Jude has had a significant impact on the lives of children with cancer across the globe. In fact, doctors and researchers at St. Jude have helped increase the overall survival rate for childhood cancers from less than 20% when St. Jude opened, to more than 80% today.

One way St. Jude has taken major steps to improve survival rates everywhere is by openly sharing its research and discoveries with scientists around the world. Through the creation of resources such as St. Jude Cloud and St. Jude Cure4Kids each child saved at St. Jude means even more lives can be saved around the world.

St. Jude has treated children in all 50 states and from around the globe. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, so they can focus on helping their child live. Support the St. Jude mission and follow their journey on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube.
