Every dollar makes a difference for St. Jude kids

Donate $1 at checkout to help St. Jude kids like Abraham.

Price Chopper/Market 32 will match all donations, up to $5,000.

  • St. Jude is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life threatening diseases. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, which means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children.
  • Treatments developed at St. Jude have helped push the overall survival rate for childhood cancer from 20% when the hospital opened in 1962 to more than 80% today. In addition, St. Jude has achieved a 94% survival rate for ALL, up from 4% in 1962, and the survival rate for medulloblastoma, a type of brain tumor, increased from 10 percent to 85% today.
  • Despite all that progress, 1 in 5 children in the U.S. who are diagnosed with cancer will not survive. Globally, the vast majority of childhood cancer patients do not have access to adequate care and will not survive. St. Jude, ALSAC and our supporters are working hard to change this.

    • As one of the largest pediatric cancer hospitals in the world, St. Jude treats about 8,500 patients each year with 69 beds in operation and a license to go up to 80 beds. 
    • St. Jude believes a child should live as normal a childhood as possible even when battling life-threatening diseases. That’s why most of their patients are treated as outpatients and stay in one of four housing facilities with nearly 300 rooms specifically designed and managed by St. Jude for families of children with cancer and other diseases.
    •  
    • The treatments for pediatric cancer can last up to three years or more and cost on average $425,000, including housing, travel and food. No family ever receives a bill from St. Jude for care and no family is asked to pay co-pays or deductibles. More than 50 percent of our patients are under- or uninsured.

Help Cure Rare Disease efforts to advance research to treat rare, genetic diseases.

Price Chopper/Market 32 and Freihofer’s will donate 10 cents to Cure Rare Disease with the purchase of specially marked Freihofer’s products. 

Cure Rare Disease is a 501c3 nonprofit biotechnology organization that is pioneering the development of tailor-made medicines for children suffering from rare, genetic diseases who have no treatment or cure. Cure Rare Disease (CRD) does this through a collaboration of the leading academic research institutes, researchers and clinicians in the United States. Founded by Rich Horgan, Cure Rare Disease was born out of frustration with the lack of medical options for his own brother Terry, who was born with a muscle-wasting disease called Duchenne muscular dystrophy. People impacted by Duchenne typically live until their mid-20s and there is currently no effective treatment or cure. Moreover, over 30% of rare disease patients are children.

The Cure Rare Disease customized therapeutic approach is a new approach to treating previously untreatable rare and genetic diseases. Whereas traditional drug development treats more prevalent diseases with a one-size-fits-all approach, and has followed this approach for decades — Cure Rare Disease and collaborators develop customized medicines using the patient’s own cells to inform and guide therapeutic development. Researchers from Yale School of Medicine, Charles River Laboratories, the University of Massachusetts Medical School and several other collaborators work together and share their findings to accelerate the research from research bench to patient bedside. 

The ultimate vision of Cure Rare Disease is to enable all patients, regardless of their disease, to get an effective treatment in time. We do so by working across the healthcare ecosystem with the FDA, insurance companies, researchers and clinicians so that our customized therapeutics will be covered by insurance and efficiently approved by the FDA.

You can learn more about Cure Rare Disease at cureraredisease.org and follow them on social media @cureraredisease.
