From dream to reality

More than 50 years after saying this prayer, Danny Thomas' dream continues to inspire people to give. Since opening in 1962, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has become a symbol of hope and a second chance at life for the critically ill children of the world. 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.

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 more than 50 years ago. We won’t stop until no child dies from cancer.

An 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.

This is why all of us at St. Jude—from the children and their families, to the doctors and scientists, to countless other dedicated individuals—welcome you to our family.
