ned away from receiving treatment because of a family's inability to pay," said John P. Moses, Chief Executive Officer of ALSAC, the fundraising organization of St. Jude. "We want the community to know that every donation, even as little as $20 a month, helps make a difference in saving a child's life at St. Jude."

More than 85 cents of every dollar St. Jude receives goes directly to research and treatment. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatments that are not covered by insurance. The hospital's daily operating costs are nearly $1.3 million, which are primarily covered by public contributions.

Opened in 1962, St. Jude freely shares its research findings with hospitals everywhere.

St. Jude's International Outreach Program shares its expertise and knowledge with partner countries around the world, including Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, and Venezuela.
