The American Lebanese Syrian Associated Charities (ALSAC) raises funds for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to find cures for children with catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital was founded by entertainer Danny Thomas and opened in 1962. It is supported primarily by funds from volunteer contributions raised by ALSAC. Research efforts are directed at understanding the molecular, genetic and chemical bases of catastrophic diseases in children, identifying cures for such diseases and promoting their prevention. Research is focused specifically on cancers, acquired and inherited immunodeficiencies, infectious diseases and genetic disorders.
