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.

Founder Danny Thomas  believed that "no child should die in the dawn of life," and St. Jude has spent more than half a century finding cures and saving children.

Because the majority of St. Jude funding comes from individual contributors, St. Jude has the freedom to focus on what matters most, and that is saving kids regardless of their financial situation.

The budgeted daily operating cost of St. Jude is $2 million. Approximately 75% of the budgeted costs of St. Jude are covered by public contributions.

St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
