Making a difference supporting St. Jude's hospital

This world is full of people in crisis and need. St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is a good place to start. St. Jude's hospital opened on Feb. 4, 1962, and today is the world's premier pediatric research institution. Danny Thomas, a famous actor, wanted to build a facility that would treat children regardless of race, color, creed or a family's ability to pay. His motto was "No child should die in the dawn of life."

Despite St. Jude's success, cancer remains the leading cause of death by disease in U.S. kids older than 1 year. The financial support given to the hospital by people like you and me helps continue the mission of finding cures and saving children. Donations make sure that no family receives a bill and their focus remains on the child, where it should be. You see how easy it is to make a difference? Donate, and know that you are helping to save a child's life and making the world a better place. My dad and I donate all the time. It helps others, and we feel good making a difference.
