From brightly painted and decorated walls to transportation via red wagons, laughter is heard in the halls at St. Jude despite the seriousness of children's lives. This sculpture of two children was in the entrance way that greets the patients at St. Jude. All areas of the hospital are covered with happy murals and items to make one enjoy their surroundings.
DID YOU KNOW? There is no place like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital. No family ever pays St. Jude for anything. DID YOU KNOW? St. Jude treats children fighting cancer and other deadly diseases with pioneering research and exceptional care. Artworks created by patients. "I love making art for St. Jude! I feel like they've given so much to me, and I want to give back. (Amber, at age 22 had a brain tumor)
DID YOU KNOW? At St. Jude, we speed our research discoveries from our labs to patients and doctors everywhere. DID YOU KNOW? One child saved at St. Jude means thousands more saved worldwide. More artworks created by patients.
We were enlightened about the education of patients while they are with St. Jude. Dr. Charles Mulligan, Department of Pathology Hematologic Malignancies Program gave an overview of the progress and procedures being done at St. Jude. A former patient, now working at St. Jude, shared the success story of her experience at St. Jude as a child.
