Around the World with St. Jude

Around the World with St. Jude

This year, parents of nearly 16,000 children in the U.S. will hear these four words:


St. Jude freely shares the discoveries we make and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.


We invite you to make a difference at the Sixth Annual Around the World with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Our signature gala celebrates St. Jude and our St. Jude Global Pediatrics program. For more than 20 years, St. Jude has been working to improve global survival rates for children with cancer and other life-threatening diseases.

Today, more than 80% of children with cancer live in low and middle income countries, and most do not have access to modern treatment. Our goal is to give children with cancer access to quality care no matter where they live.

Because our discoveries are freely shared with doctors and researchers around the world, one child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide. By expanding our reach internationally, St Jude can save even more children. The St Jude Global program has 24 partner sites in 17 different countries:


We hope you will find it in your heart to join us in the fight against childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases, so we can achieve our founder’s vision that “no child should die in the dawn of life.”
