    Lets raise at least $1,000 for ST JUDES CHILDREN HOSPITAL

    After donating/purchasing in SBR STORE, list your amount donated in this thread.

    Will update the fund as the day progress.

    Raising $1,000 should be a piece of cake considering all the big pts winners here lately.



    Quick Facts about St. Jude




    • St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital opened on February 4, 1962 and was founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas. Its mission is to find cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world.
    • On average, 5,700 active patients visit the hospital each year, most of whom are treated on an outpatient basis.
    • St. Jude has 78 inpatient beds and treats upwards of 230 patients each day.
    • St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute.
    • St. Jude is the first institution established for the sole purpose of conducting basic and clinical research and treatment into catastrophic childhood diseases, mainly cancer.
    • Research findings at St. Jude are shared freely with doctors and scientists all over the world.
    • The medical and scientific staff published more than 640 articles in academic journals in 2009, more than any other pediatric cancer research center in the United States. St. Jude’s researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology institution in America.
    • 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.
    • In 2009, Parents magazine named St. Jude the No. 1 pediatric cancer care hospital in the country, based on the magazine's survey of more than 75 children's hospitals nationwide.
    • 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 current St. Jude survival rates for selected childhood cancers now include:
    DiagnosisSurvival Rate Acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), most common form of childhood cancer 94%Hodgkin lymphoma (cancer of the lymph system) 90%Medulloblastoma (a type of brain tumor)85%Wilms tumor (kidney tumor)90%
    • In 1962, the survival rate for acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL), the most common form of childhood cancer, was 4 percent. Today, the survival rate for this once deadly disease is 94 percent, thanks to research and treatment protocols developed at St. Jude.
    • 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.
    • St. Jude recently completed an extensive expansion program that bolstered the hospital’s research and treatment efforts, while more than doubling the size of its original campus. The campus now has 2.5 million square feet of research, clinical and administrative space dedicated to finding cures and saving children. The expansion included the Children’s GMP, LLC, currently the nation’s only pediatric research center on-site facility for the research and production of highly specialized treatments and vaccines; an expanded Department of Immunology; and a new Department of Chemical Biology and Therapeutics for discovery of new drugs.
    • The Chili’s Care Center, opened in November 2007, integrates patient care and research where rapidly evolving CT (computerized tomography) and MR (magnetic resonance) technologies keep St. Jude at the cutting edge for radiation therapy in a pediatric/adolescent setting. Additionally, a state-of-the-art cyclotron enables St. Jude researchers to undertake many important new PET (positron emission tomography) studies. These imaging techniques facilitate the rapid evaluation of new therapeutic approaches and help choose those most likely to be successful.
    • St. Jude pioneered a combination of chemotherapy, radiation and surgery to treat childhood cancers.
    • Peter C. Doherty, PhD, of the St. Jude Immunology department, won the Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine in 1996. He shares the award with Rolf M. Zinkernagel, MD, of the University of Zurich. Their findings have led to breakthroughs in the understanding and treatment of viral infections and cancers, and in the development of organ transplant procedures and vaccines.
    • St. Jude patients are referred by a physician, and generally have a disease currently under study and are eligible for a current research protocol on clinical research trials.
    • St. Jude researchers and doctors are treating children with genetic immune defects and pediatric AIDS, as well as using new drugs and therapies to fight infections.
    • St. Jude was the first institution to develop a cure for sickle cell disease with a bone marrow transplant and has one of the largest pediatric sickle cell programs in the country.
    • St. Jude is a World Health Organization Collaborating Center for Studies on the Ecology of Influenza Viruses in Animals and Birds.
    • St. Jude was the first facility outside the National Institutes of Health to receive federal approval for research involving human gene therapy.
    • The St. Jude faculty includes three National Academy of Sciences members: Peter C. Doherty, PhD, of Immunology; Charles Sherr, MD, PhD, of Tumor Cell Biology; and Robert Webster, PhD, of Infectious Diseases. Sherr and Brenda Schulman, PhD, Structural Biology, hold the coveted title of Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigators.
    • The St. Jude faculty also includes six members of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences: William E. Evans, St. Jude director and chief executive officer; Arthur Nienhuis, MD, of Hematology and former director and CEO; Charles Sherr, MD, PhD, of Tumor Cell Biology; Nobel Laureate Peter Doherty, PhD, of Immunology; Michael Kastan, MD, PhD, Comprehensive Cancer Center director; and Mary Relling, PharmD, Pharmaceutical Sciences chair.

    Fishy, I work in a Children's hospital, that money never goes directly to the kids. You are giving them your money to help with the loss of the funds they get from the state. They are not paying out what they used to for Medicare and Medicaid so they need to find a way to get that money back. You are paying for the doctors to take vacations and to put their children through college.

    Two Health Charities Rank as America's Most Trusted Nonprofit Brands

    St. Jude Children's Research Hospital

    St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, in Memphis, was named the nation's most trusted nonprofit brand in a 2010 poll conducted by Harris Interactive, a market-research firm.

    St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital, in Memphis, was named the nation's most trusted nonprofit brand in a 2010 poll conducted by Harris Interactive, a market-research firm.


    By Heather Joslyn
    St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and Susan G. Komen for the Cure are the two most trusted nonprofit brand names in America, according to a new survey by Harris Interactive.
    While St. Jude, in Memphis, placed first as the most-trusted nonprofit brands, ahead of No. 2 Komen, the organizations’ rankings were reversed in the category of brand equity, or overall brand value.
    The survey also found that Komen, a Dallas group that raises money for breast-cancer research, is the charity to which people say they are most likely to donate money.
    Harris Interactive, a market research firm, surveyed more than 19,000 U.S. consumers online in January, asking respondents about more than 1,100 brands. The study compiled results on which brands were most trusted by the public, which ranked highest in brand equity (or overall brand value), and asked which nonprofit brands were most likely to garner donations.
    Trust and Giving
    Only three organizations that made the top 10 among the most-trusted brands—Doctors Without Borders (No. 5), the Smithsonian Institution (No. 6), and Habitat for Humanity International (No. 8)—did not also make the list of the 10 charity brands that people said were most likely to earn their gifts.

    Susan G. Komen for the Cure




    In descending order, the 10 brands to which respondents said they would be most likely to donate were: Susan G. Komen for the Cure, American Cancer Society, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Goodwill Industries, Salvation Army, Cleveland Clinic, Heifer Project International, Make-a-Wish Foundation, Mayo Clinic, and American Red Cross.
    Komen has held the top spot in this category for two straight years.
    The poll also found that respondents’ overall likelihood of donating to charity has increased this year over previous Harris surveys. That increase “is perhaps due to the desire of Americans to reach out to help those who are suffering as a result of the poor economic conditions,” said Justin Greeves, senior vice president of public affairs and policy at Harris Interactive, in a statement

    Fish, that is really good to hear. But I am sorry, it does not change my opinion on the entire situation with hospitals looking for money.

    Your heart is in the right place. The gambling gods will repay you for your efforts.

    Not looking for repay.........but I feel confident the money will help in some form or fashion.

    If it happens to pay for a ST JUDES doctors vacation, so be it, they deserve it.

    Seems like a good gamble to me risking a few betpoints to donate $30 in hopes that it goes to a worthy cause.
