St. Jude Is Changing Lives Every Day Fighting Childhood Cancer 

I've always heard what St. Jude was about, but it wasn't until today where I really got to know the truth. St. Jude is a Godsend to many families around the world.

If you're like me, you've seen the commercials on tv. Maybe you've even heard a few celebrities talking about St. Jude and wearing that "This Shirt Saves Lives" shirt on social media. St. Jude is a children's research hospital that is dedicated to treating, defeating, and understanding childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. By pledging $19 a month on your credit or debit card, you can become a “Partner in Hope.”  Once you're a partner, you'll get a brand new “We Won’t Stop” t-shirt so you can spread the message about St. Jude to everyone you know and meet. St. Jude has declared that they will not stop this fight until no child dies from cancer.

They've made significant progress through the years. According to StJude.org, treatments invented 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.

The more I learn about St. Jude, the more I fall in love with this organization.  Kids are allowed to receive treatment at St. Jude and the families are obligated to pay nothing. Not one cent. They believe that families should focus only on making sure their child lives. I'm not an overly emotional guy, but that's enough to make me cry. Especially when I found out that St. Jude not only helps families of kids with cancer but sickle cell disease too!

My wife has sickle cell so I know first hand how expensive treatments and meds can be. The fact that St. Jude handles all of the expenses for families is amazing. They don't have to pay for food, lodging, travel, or treatment.

I absolutely love what St. Jude is doing to help not only the kids but their families as well.  I couldn't imagine my son being diagnosed with a life-threatening disease. I wouldn't know what to do, or how I'd come up with the money to pay for treatments and meds. I know I'd appreciate the hard work and research of an organization like St. Jude that takes care of the families and is at the forefront of inventing cures and treatments for these diseases.
