The St.Judes Childrens Research Hospital was founded by the late Danny Thomas, he wanted to ensure a place that kids could go and get the best treatment possible without having to worry the families about the cost of the treatment, over the years they have seen the recovery go from a very low 17-18% survival rate to well over 90%.
I would like to say thank you to everyone involved in this great cause, thank you for your time, thank you for your donations and thank you all for contributing.
