When asked: Why should I support St. Jude instead of my local children’s hospital?

Local hospitals are vital to the health of children in every community. They deserve and need your support. Thankfully compassion does not have to be limited to just one cause. But, we also encourage you to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital as we are a global resource completely focused on childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases in children. Our work helps children around the globe, including kids right in your community. Let me tell you more.
