St. Jude Children's Research Hospital wrote -
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital strives to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. It is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, and no child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.
St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to 80 percent today.
St. Jude depends on donors to ensure that no child is ever denied treatment because of the family's inability to pay.
