Finding cures. Saving children.® Everywhere.

St. Jude cares for some of the world’s sickest children regardless of their race, ethnicity, beliefs, or ability to pay.Ourpatients receive thecustomizedcare they need to treat childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, no matter what barriers they may face.

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped raise the survival rate for children with cancer in the United States, where more than 4 out of 5 children survive cancer. In many developing countries, however, fewer than 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.
