St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded in 1962 by the late entertainer Danny Thomas with the mission of finding cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from all across the world. 

On average, St. Jude has more than 67,000 patient visits each year, most of whom are treated on an outpatient basis. St. Jude has 78 inpatient beds and treats over 250 patients a day. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. 

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a world leader in developing new and improved treatments for children with cancer. St. Jude creates more clinical trials for cancer than any other children’s hospital. St. Jude has helped increase the survival rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia from 4% in 1962 to 94% today. 

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital treats an average of 7,800 children from all 50 states and around the world. No family of St. Jude pays for anything; they never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food. The daily operating costs for St. Jude is $2 million, which is primarily covered by individual contributions. Because of these contributions, St. Jude can focus on what matters most: saving kids regardless of their financial situation.
