St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering research and treatment of children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Unlike any other pediatric and research facility, St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent in 1962 when its door’s opened to 80 percent today. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly and ultimately save the lives of children worldwide.
