St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital

St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility anywhere. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases.

We are where some of today’s most gifted researchers are able to do more science, more quickly. Where doctors across the world send their toughest cases and most vulnerable patients. Where no one pays for treatment beyond what is covered by insurance, and those without insurance are never asked to pay. We’ve built America’s 3rd-largest health-care charity, with a model that keeps the costs down and the funds flowing, so the science never stops.

All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family’s ability to pay.

  1. I have sister in Pakistan, who was diagnosed with backbone tumor 10 years an ago, and she survived the operation, but after that she cannot move her legs and was no wheel chair all the time. and she has cold legs. 10 Month a ago a Pakistan Army trained doctor came from America who did some courses in America, and was our family friend he suggested that during his stay in America he learned that new medical technique of implanting a shunt in her neck to drain the brain fluid in to her stomach, would help my sister feel that her legs again. My sister went through operation, and after operation, she has continues high fever, she cannot move her whole body. Alshaf Hospital in Islamabad and Kadir Hospital in Islamabad considered her dying patient and refused to treat her. But CMH hospital in Rawalpindi took her in, and since last 8 months they cannot reduce her fever, and they also refused to remove shunt from her neck. I cannot see her in too much pain and whole family is going through hell, seeing her in such pain and agony. I am asking if someone can help her in this situation. she is 38 years old and mom of two kids. As family we cannot afford expensive foreign medical treatments.

    Thanks,
