St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
Danny Thomas founded St. Jude with the vision of creating a
research hospital for the Study of catastrophic childhood diseases, where children suffering from cancer and other illnesses would receive world-class care. And he promised that no child would ever be turned away because of race, religion or inability to pay.
True to his word, Danny built St. Jude Children's Hospital.
