About St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
For over 70 years, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital has been working to better understand and cure cancer and other life-threatening illnesses in children. They also provide not just for the children they are treating, but for the families of their patients as well, all at no cost: 75% of their operating funds are donation-based!
"At St. Jude, we pay for all treatment; travel for a patient and a parent; housing for up to four in a family with options for bigger accommodations; and a daily food allowance for our cafeteria as well as food gift cards so families can prepare meals in one of our three housing facilities. Our onsite school allows patients to keep up with their school program back home. We offer numerous other services for our families, including psychosocial help for caregivers and siblings coping with a child’s cancer diagnosis; child life specialists, concierge services"(www.stjude.org/about-st-jude/unique-operating-model)

About Ronald McDonald House Charities
Since opening their first House in 1974, Ronald McDonald House Charities has been helping children heal and families stay together. They recognized that children need their loved ones nearby when undergoing treatment for serious illnesses, but families don't always have the means to relocate during treatment. Ronald McDonald House Charities offers a variety of services to families in hospital environments, and are also working to bring healthcare to underserved communities!
"Our Ronald McDonald House programs, located near top children’s hospitals, allow parents who are far from home to stay close to their hospitalized child and benefit from the comforts of home without incurring hotel and food costs. Ronald McDonald Family Room programs offer a quiet respite for all families right in the hospital. And Ronald McDonald Care Mobile programs bring fundamental medical and dental care to underserved communities."(www.rmhc.org/about-us)
