Get to know: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
It is the only comprehensive cancer center designated by the National Cancer Institute dedicated exclusively to children. When St. Jude opened its doors in 1962, childhood cancer was considered incurable. Since then, St. Jude has helped increase the overall survival rate from 20% to more than 80%, and it won't stop until no child dies of cancer.
