Every Dollar Makes a Difference

Because most of St Jude’s funding comes from individual supporters, they have the freedom to focus on what matters most – finding cures and saving children.

  • $3 = pediatric isolation masks to help protect patients with compromised immune systems
  • $10 = a new toy for hospital play areas or recreational areas at St. Jude housing facilities
  • $30 = meals for one day for a St. Jude family in Kay Kafe, the St. Jude cafeteria
  • $100 = a pair of pediatric crutches sized especially for kids
  • $275 = one red blood cell transfusion for a St. Jude patient
  • $1,000 = covers two-thirds of the cost of one day of chemotherapy
  • $5,000 = cost of the daily room rate in the  ICU
