St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is a hospital with a mission to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. Consistent with the vision of their founder Danny Thomas, no child is denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay.
To bring awareness to the great work they do for children and their families, the Memphis-based hospital hosted it Celebration of Hope Weekend, which brings together celebrities, radio personalities, influencers and media people to raise awareness for the donor-operated medical facility.
Guests were able to tour the St. Jude Hospital and the Target House Residences where patients and their families stay during treatment. It was a remarkable experience being able to talk with patients, their doctors, researchers and other important players in the care of the St. Jude kids and seeing the top-notch facilities and treatments offered firsthand.
Despite the severity of some of the patients’ health conditions, the atmosphere at St. Jude felt like Walt Disney World. The moral was high – even with patients and their families – who were optimistic that they be healed at the hands of the St. Jude team, who have an outstanding track record for returning children to full health.
