St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital helps thousands of patients a year, all at the cost of one-point eight million dollars a day. The entire hospital is kid friendly, designed to help them forget their pain.
St. Jude treats kids of all ages - from the very youngest newborns to teenagers. Sometmes, they want a way to express how they're feeling. And if they can't do it in words they do it in art. This piece is called "Ray of Hope."
Even the cafeteria is fun. Chefs work at creating food that is tasty, but healthy as well.
At St. Jude, they believe there is more to healing than just medicine. That's why you'll find a complete support staff, from social workers to school teachers and chaplains. There are two chapels on campus for quiet time, reflection, and prayer.
Behind the bright walls of St. Jude Children's Hospital, there's a lot of work going on.
Researchers work tirelessly to find a cure for cancer and better treatments.
