St. Jude Research Hospital has the world’s best survival rates for some of the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since we opened more than 50 years ago.

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.
