American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities, Inc.

I worked at St. Jude on staff for 17 yr. I saw it change from an institution focussed on the children to an institution that derided its clinical staff and placed its priorities elsewhere i.e. laboratory though they still used the children as the means to raise money. Professionally, St. Jude has not made a major contribution to the outcome of children with cancer in over 20 yr - others have done that including the key areas of leukemia, brain tumors and non-Hodgkin lymphoma despite their claims on TV and elsewhere. The staff including nurse, techs etc who actually take care of the children have minimal retirements/benefits - actually embarrassing despite having spent 20-30 yr at the institution. Danny Thomas was great - and truly loved the children and supported staff. When he died - that died. When Don Pinkel (first medical director) left , the achievements in cancer therapy left. Give to your local cancer hospital - they give the same or better care. St. Jude is bloated with money.

I do support this charity as I feel only a large organization with a national presence can help with certain issues. However, I really really do not want all the stuff they send you in the mail and that I then end throwing out. No way/mechanism to tell them this. Think a LOT of money wasted this way.
