Why St. Jude?
Our laboratories may not be in your communities,
but our discoveries are.
- When St. Jude opened in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then,
St. Jude has helped push the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%,
and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.
- St. Jude cares for some of the world’s sickest children regardless of their race, ethnicity,
beliefs, or ability to pay. Our patients receive the customized care they need to treat
childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, no matter what barriers they may face.
Because of your support, we can provide children cutting-edge treatments not covered
by insurance, at no cost to families.
- Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped raise the survival rate for children with
cancer in the United States, where 4 out of 5 children survive cancer. In many developing
countries, however, 1 out of 5 children diagnosed with cancer will survive. We won’t
stop until no child dies from cancer, no matter where they live.
