St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

The St. Jude's Children’s Cancer Research Hospital is dedicated to end childhood cancer. Their main focus is to support the research of bright scientists across the country whose ideas can make the greatest impact for children fighting cancer. St. Jude's also funds resources and programs that help kids and families as they navigate the difficult experience of cancer treatment and survivorship.

Funding for childhood cancer research pales in comparison to funds available for research into adult cancers. In fact, as a percentage of cancer research funding from the federal government, childhood cancer research funding is in the single digits. It is crucial that St. Jude's funds safer, more effective treatments and cures for kids with cancer. The road to new, better treatment options always starts with philanthropic support like that given by Open Door Church Ministries.
