St. Jude Children's Research Hospital Donation/Impact


Council: 1299 - GARDINER

Project Description:

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital mission is to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of our founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. (From Website)

Each month Gardiner Council 1299 donates $25 to St. Jude Hospital from the proceeds of the weekly beano held each week and other fundraising events. The total yearly donation is $300.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — so they can focus on helping their child live. St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world.
Their goal: 100% survival . Treatments developed at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to more than 80% since it opened more than 50 years ago. (From Website)
