At St. Jude Children’s Hospital, no family receives a bill.
No. Family. Receives. a. Bill.
Founded by Danny Thomas in 1962, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® leads the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Research and treatments pioneered at St. Jude have improved the childhood cancer survival rate from 20% to 80%. At St. Jude, families are given fully equipped housing creating a sense of community and home during the most difficult times.
No child will ever be turned away based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. Though it costs over 2 million dollars a day to operate the hospital, the families at St. Jude never see a bill for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
Lancôme has raised over $12 million for St Jude since the start of their collaboration in 2010. Lancôme USA president, Xavier Vey says, “It’s a very important partnership for Lancôme. It was rooted in a strong, shared belief in research and innovation that can transform lives. But that was just the beginning. For these families facing difficult times, we bring a slight moment of happiness. And that’s fundamental for Lancôme, because the brand is all about bringing happiness beyond beauty. We like to say that at Lancôme, you come to a counter to look more beautiful, but you leave happier.”
From September 29 to October 25th, Lancôme will donate $1 to St. Jude for every purchase on Lancôme-usa.com and at Lancôme counters nationwide. Please support St. Jude by making your makeup/skin care purchases through Lancôme exclusively until October 25th. You can also post on social to raise awareness.
Cancer is something that has touched all of us in some way or another. Share our video, and post a picture of your own “moment of happiness” or share your story of how St. Jude impacted your life.
Lancôme will make a $1 donation to St. Jude for every transaction made on Lancome-usa.com and at counters nationwide.
