St. Jude Turns 50 

Marlo Thomas:

There came a moment in my father’s career when he said to himself, “I’ve made it. I’ve got everything I need. Now it’s time to give back.” This would eventually come to mean years of tirelessly building his dream — a research hospital dedicated to the study of cancer in children, where no child would ever be turned away for a family’s inability to pay. And what a reality that dream has become. Fifty years after its launch, St. Jude is the premier research and treatment center in the country for children stricken with cancer.

Thank God for Danny.
