St. Jude is a specialty research hospital for children. They focus on providing exceptional care to patients with pediatric cancer and other life-threatening diseases. St. Jude believes a child should live as normal a childhood as possible even when battling life-threatening diseases. That’s why most of the patients are treated as outpatients and stay in one of the four housing facilities with nearly 300 rooms specifically designed and managed by St. Jude for families of children with cancer and other diseases. The majority of funding for St. Jude comes from generous donors.
