Kay Jewelers Joins St. Jude Children's Research Hospital(R) to Kick Off Fourth Annual Thanks and Giving(R) Campaign

n's Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. Founded in 1962 by late entertainer Danny Thomas, St. Jude has treated children from across the country and around the world.

-- No child is ever turned away because of a family's inability to pay.

-- St. Jude covers all costs for treatment and is the only pediatric

cancer research center that pays for travel, lodging and food for

patients and a family member.

-- Eighty-five cents of every dollar received goes directly to research

and treatment.

-- 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, 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.
