Over 70 years ago, Danny Thomas was a young entertainer with a baby on the way. Work wasn’t easy to come by, and his despair grew. He turned to St. Jude Thaddeus, the patron saint of hopeless causes, and vowed, “Show me my way in life, and I will build you a shrine.” His shrine would become St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Today, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a global leader in the research and treatment of pediatric cancer and other life-threatening diseases of childhood. St. Jude is recognized as one of the world’s premier pediatric research and treatment institutions with a focus on acute lymphoblastic leukemia, brain tumors and infectious diseases. Research and treatments developed at St. Jude are shared to help improve the survival rate for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases worldwide. Headquartered in Memphis, Tennessee, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the first and only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. St. Jude has been named a top pediatric cancer hospital on U.S. News & World Report’s annual “Best Hospitals” list and named to Fortune magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list.
