A gift that keeps on giving

Mommy tells me everyday that I should remember others in need that may need more help than we do. This month mommy said that Tri Delta is celebrating St. Jude Month and she is asking all of her friends to make donations to support the cause.

I have decided that I wanted to also join in the fight and ask all of my fans to help out as well.

Did you know:
St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment because of the family’s inability to pay.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is the nation’s top children’s cancer hospital, according to the 2010-11 Best Children’s Hospitals rankings published by U.S. News & World Report.

St. Jude has developed protocols that have helped push overall survival rates for childhood cancers from less than 20 percent when the hospital opened in 1962 to 80 percent today.

The daily operating cost for St. Jude is $1.6 million, which is primarily covered by public contributions.

During the past five years, 81 cents of every dollar received has supported the research and treatment at St. Jude.
