- No family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
- St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world.
On average, 7,800 active patients visit the hospital each year, most of whom are treated on an outpatient basis.
St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to 80 percent today.
Research findings at St. Jude are shared freely with doctors and scientists all over the world.
In 1962, the survival rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer, was 4 percent. Today, the survival rate for this once deadly disease is 94 percent, thanks to research and treatment protocols developed at St. Jude.
The daily operating cost for St. Jude is $1.8 million, which is primarily covered by public contributions.
