St. Jude Children's Research Hospital located in Memphis, TN is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.
St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do more science, more quickly. Where doctors across the world send their toughest cases and most vulnerable patients. At St. Jude no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay. St. Jude has built America's third largest health care charity, with a model that keeps the costs down and the funds flowing so science never stops.
All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay. That is why each year the BIG 98 holds the Country Cares for St. Jude's Kids Radiothon and sponsors the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway. It is because of YOU, the listener giving so generously, that the BIG 98 has been able to pass along $5.1 million to St. Jude over the years. However, the need for help doesn't stop at the end of the radiothon or the dream home giveaway.
