As exciting as winning a dream home, dream car or a shopping spree can be, the most important part of this campaign is helping families facing pediatric cancer. When you reserve a ticket in the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway, you are helping make sure families can focus solely on their child who is being treated at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. No family every receives a bill from St. Jude, not for treatment, travel, transportation or food.
In addition, your support will stretch beyond the walls of St. Jude as researchers at the hospital share their knowledge and treatment freely with doctors and hospitals all around the world. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to 80% since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago.
