Americord donates to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

This year Americord has begun what we hope to be a long and very important relationship with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The work they do is consistent with our values so we are honored to contribute to their worthy cause.  Starting in 2013 Americord is making financial contributions to St. Jude to help their mission to find cures and save children around the world who are fighting cancer.

Here are just a few of St. Jude’s accomplishments:

  • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s mission is to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment.
  • On average, 7,800 active patients visit the hospital each year.
  • 81 cents of every dollar received has supported the research and treatment at St. Jude.
  • St. Jude pioneered a combination of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to treat childhood cancers.
  • No family ever pays St. Jude for anything.
