St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital: To find cures and means of prevention for childhood catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. ALSAC: Led by Richard C. Shadyac Jr., Chief Executive Officer , ALSAC coordinates the fundraising activities of the more than 1 million volunteers and donors who support the hospital each year. ALSAC operations are overseen by its Board of Directors who are also the same volunteers serving as the St. Jude Board of Governors.
St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital: Over 5,000 patients are seen at St. Jude yearly. Most are treated on an outpatient basis, which helps them maintain a sense of normalcy with their families. In addition to the major clinics and treatment areas, an eye clinic, dental clinic, pharmacy, and rehabilitation services are included. The hospital maintains 60 beds for patients requiring hospitalization during treatment. •St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and all over the world. •Patients are accepted by physician referral based on the patient's eligibility for an ongoing treatment study, regardless of race, sex, ethnicity, religion, or their inability to pay. •We are the only pediatric research center where families never pay for treatment not covered by insurance, and families without insurance are never asked to pay. •More than 85 cents of every dollar we received during the last three years has gone directly to patient care, research, education and training. ALSAC: We raise the funds and build awareness to sustain the mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital to advance cures, and means of prevention, for pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment while honoring the memory and heritage of our founder, Danny Thomas.

As i read the negative reviews, i notice that most of it is about money. I guess you are all right, no one needs that much money. However, the need is never a part of the value now is it. If each of you were paid on your " need" at your job, would it be less or more? Highly educated , sharp professionals are hired to administrate this wonderful organization and yes they cost a lot but maybe, just maybe they are worth it and maybe their professionalism and talent is what filters down to that staff member who takes care of someone you know or love one day. Now, would you choose a cheaper version? Look at both sides and watch what you say on public boards. Writing bad reviews may make you feel better about things, but it hurts more than you think to those you point and wag your finger at.
