Need a Good Reason to Support St. Jude? We’ll Give You 5
There are so many reasons to become a Partner in Hope with St. Jude. You could do it because you like that the hospital hosts a Prom for teenage patients who may miss out on their prom back home due to their condition or treatment protocol. Or, maybe you think it's great they offer music therapy to children to help relieve the stress of undergoing treatment. The list goes on and on and on and on. Honestly, there are so many great reasons to join St. Jude in the fight against childhood cancer, it can be overwhelming, which is a good problem to have. With that said, let's whittle it down to five of the most important reasons to make your decision to become a Partner in Hope a little easier.
Really Good Great Reasons to Become a Partner in Hope with St. Jude
While St. Jude does receive funding from a number of major corporations and retailers, its people like you and me, everyday people, if you will, who provide the biggest chunk of funds that allow St. Jude to continue doing what they do — researching and developing treatment protocols for the wide variety childhood cancers and life-threatening illnesses that exist. And that alone should make you feel good. But, there are other great reasons, like these:
Once St. Jude has developed and tested a treatment protocol for a particular type of cancer and discovers that it works, they put it out there for everyone to use. Free of charge. Meaning that if a child is being treated at Riley's Hospital for Children in Indianapolis, Kosair Children's Hospital in Louisville, or any other children's hospital in the world, the treatment they receive could have been developed by St. Jude.
Number four may be the most impressive reason of them all. No matter how long a child is treated at or by St. Jude, a few days, several months, several years, whatever, the family will NEVER receive a bill from St. Jude for anything. Not for treatments, travel, food, housing, nothing.
The final reason is the best reason. Your commitment to becoming a Partner in Hope to help St. Jude help a child beat cancer means that child will have the chance to do what all children should have the chance to do, grow into an adult, chase their dreams, have a family of their own, and experience everything life has to offer.
Plus, you'll get the sweet, new, navy-colored, "This Shirt Saves Lives" you can proudly wear to show everyone you believe in the mission of St. Jude.
Now, if you're ready to join the fight, become a Partner in Hope through any one of the following ways:
