About St. Jude
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, a not-for-profit organization, has been on a mission to save children’s lives… ever since it opened its doors 50 years ago. The hospital treats nearly 6,000 young patients annually, and it is committed to finding cures for some of the deadliest childhood diseases. As a research facility, St. Jude has helped improve childhood cancer survival rates to nearly 80 percent, up from less than 20 percent in 1962. Thanks to the generous support of donors — St. Jude is the only pediatric center in the United States that fully pays for lodging, travel, and medical expenses for children and their families who are without insurance. St. Jude was recently ranked as the most trusted nonprofit brand by market research firm Harris Interactive.
