My wife, a donor, and I just toured St. Jude's Children's Hospital and Research Center and were very impressed. No clients served pays a cent and the facilities are excellent. Most impressive is the improvements in survivor rates since inception through their research. Additionally, they don't copyright any of their research papers or patent their findings. All is open, and even distributed to, all other research agencies. They have video worldwide conferences with other researchers. Whan they find doctors that are treating children with cancer that aren't educated sufficiently they bring them to Memphis to bring them up to standard. I am now changing some of my charitable giving to give to ALSAC.

ST JUDE'S RESEARCH HOSPITAL: When I worked for a major, international airline, I remember booking flights for doctors to go overseas -- in FIRST CLASS. The tickets were insanely expensive!! I understand they need to arrive rested, but Business Class would have been more than sufficiently restful, and would have been half the price. I thought about how many trips they booked and all the money that could have gone directly to patients.

This organization is amazing. I've toured their facility and their focuson the kids AND their families is amazing. Everyone I met there talked about the kids and their mission.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the way they do such a great job in reaching out ot the Hispanic market. Their results from their research are spectacular.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not do anything. They are superb.
