We support the work and ongoing research at St. Jude. The leading children’s hospital is pioneering research and treatments for kids all over the U.S. and globally with cancer and other life-threatening diseases. The hospital costs about $2.4 million a day to run, and St. Jude charges nothing for treatment and family and patient accommodations. We offer support for the research of Proton Therapy, in which precisely delivered, high-energy particles called protons are used to destroy or shrink tumors while minimizing damage to healthy tissue and organs. Research suggests proton beam therapy may be more useful for and better-tolerated by pediatric cancers over conventional radiation.
