It was started by Danny Thomas. He was struggling in the early years of his comedy career. So he made a donation to St Jude, and asked for help him provide for his family. He promised if he did he would build him a shrine. In short order he got a well paying gig. He built the hospital as a shrine.

My cousin's kid was sent there for treatment at the age of 10. My cousin can't say enough about them. He loves them and makes a sizeable donation every year. He's very tight, so to me that means he truly believes in what they do. They never charged him a dime. They take what insurance give them, and for uninsured people they don't ask for any money. Thus why it costs over $2 million/day to run. They also help with lodging and travel expenses.

I think a lot of the doctors who work there donate their time.

Also looking at charity sites it looks like $0.82 of every dollar donated to their fundraising org is sent to St Judes.

I think his daughter, Marlo stayed heavily involved when her father died.

I've never heard a negative word regarding St Jude's Hospital; all positive.

I donate to them every month. That's all I have to say about that.

Someone already posted the link on history. I grew up in Memphis and it is a great place.

In 1991 I had a St Jude Aortic valve put in my heart, along with some other man made parts. Made out of Titanium. Kind of loud but keeps on clicking.

That's the first check I write every month. I have been donating for a long time. I think it's one of the best charities to donate to. I also have seven grandchildren I hope they never need any treatment there but I feel better about supporting them in advance.

Can not speak highly enough for St. Judes and Shriner's Hospitals for children.

I know a couple people that had kids go there.
Initially we wanted to go there for my daughters cancer but we landed up at MSKCC and it was a great blessing.
