I'm talking about St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee. This place is a game-changer when it comes to medical care for children battling cancer and other illnesses.

They help kids from all over the country and it doesn't matter what their family's financial situation is. Families never get a bill from St. Jude because they believe that when kids are fighting for their lives, their families shouldn't worry about money.

St. Jude cover all the costs from surgeries and medications to transportation and accommodations for the whole family. It's one less thing that the family has to worry about and they can focus on what really matters, their child's health.

Here is another thing that they do. St. Jude knows that not every child can make it to their hospital. So, they've set up a group of hospitals and clinics all across America, including here in New York.

They work with St. Jude to make sure that kids get the same kind of care in their own community. St. Jude is helping children in need wherever they are and their research is mind-blowing. They're not just treating diseases; they're  looking for cures.

These people are the superheroes of the medical world. They are making  groundbreaking discoveries in cancer treatment, infectious diseases, blood disorders, and so much more.

The best part is that they don't keep their knowledge to themselves. St. Jude works  with other hospitals and research groups, so their findings benefit kids all across the country.

Without a doubt, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital is the place where miracles happen. They spread hope and change lives for kids everywhere. It's a place where families find comfort, knowing that their child is in the best possible hands.

St. Jude believes that no child should ever face the battle alone, as they're saving lives, one child at a time.
