-- St. Jude has increased the survival rate of the most common form of

childhood cancer, acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), from 4 percent

when the hospital opened to 94 percent today.

-- Every breakthrough at St. Jude is freely shared with the scientific and

medical community worldwide. That's why St. Jude is called the

"hospital without walls."

-- St. Jude is the epicenter for pediatric brain tumor research and has

one of the largest sickle cell disease programs in the country.

-- St. Jude discovered a way to lessen side effects, making radiation

treatment more effective for virtually all cancers.

-- St. Jude follows the progress of its patients long after they leave the

hospital, providing related follow-up services, advice and assistance

at no charge to the patients.

More information is available at http://www.stjude.org, where visitors can view the celebrity spots, learn about the corporate partners, buy unique merchandise designed by the patients at St. Jude and meet some of the patients.
