At least 8% of the price from each purchase supports the St Jude mission: Finding cures. Saving children.® 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. Thanks to donations, families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food — because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
St. Jude aims to provide children with life-threatening disease access to quality care and treatment no matter where they live. In high-income countries such as the US, access to modern care has resulted in cure rates upwards of 80% for children with cancer. But about 90% of children live in low or middle-income countries where access to quality pediatric oncology care is sub-par. St. Jude Global aims to bring sophisticated medical care to children in every corner of the world. Within the next decade, its aim is to provide access to quality care to all children with cancer and blood disorders.
