St Jude Children's Research Hospital
St Jude Children's Hospital Fundraiser
Some of the people in my school are doing a Math a Thon to raise money for St Jude Children's Research Hospital. The hospital helps kids who have cancer and tried to help them whether their parents have money or not.
I'm getting sponsors who will donate money to the hospital depending on how many math problems I can answer from the Math a Thon book. Some people were sponsoring without the math questions, too. I think it'd be cool if some of the readers were able to help St Jude Children's Hospital, too and if they want to help they can send my dad an email at email@example.com or go on the St Jude site.
Here is what their website says the hospital is all about:
"St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly.
St. Jude researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology research institution in America. St. Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases. A place where cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day. We've built America's second-largest health-care charity so the science never stops.
All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude without regard to the family's ability to pay."
