birthday threatened by every cancer in every community. We save lives by
helping people stay well by preventing cancer or detecting it early; helping
people get well by being there for them during and after a cancer diagnosis;
by finding cures through investment in groundbreaking discovery; and by
fighting back by rallying lawmakers to pass laws to defeat cancer and by
rallying communities worldwide to join the fight. As the nation's largest
non-governmental investor in cancer research, contributing about $3.6 billion,
we turn what we know about cancer into what we do. As a result, more than 12

avoided it will be celebrating birthdays this year. To learn more about us or

About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Since opening more than 50 years ago, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
has changed the way the world treats childhood cancer and other
life-threatening diseases. No family ever pays St. Jude for the care their
child receives and, for every child treated here, thousands more have been
saved worldwide through St. Jude discoveries. The hospital has played a
pivotal role in pushing U.S. pediatric cancer survival rates from 20 to 80
percent overall, and is the first and only National Cancer
Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.
It is also a leader in the research and treatment of blood disorders and
infectious diseases in children. St. Jude was founded by the late entertainer
Danny Thomas, who believed that no child should die in the dawn of life. Join
that mission by visiting stjude.org or following us on facebook.com/stjude and
