In an effort to give back to the community, Mon Valley Integration has once again made a donation to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The mission of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is to advance cures and prevention of pediatric catastrophic diseases through research and treatment. No child is ever denied treatment based on race, religion or a family’s ability to pay. Families of patients never receive a bill because all a family should worry about is caring for their child.
Since being founded in 1962, St. Jude has been on the cutting edge of pediatric catastrophic disease research. Medical breakthroughs made at St. Jude are openly shared with hospitals and researchers worldwide, so that all children and their families may have hope. From the beginning, St. Jude has been developing treatments that have contributed to changing the overall survival rate for children with life threatening diseases, including growing the overall survival rate for children with cancer from 20 percent to more than 80 percent.
The majority of funding for St Jude is received from charitable donations by individuals, allowing the medical staff to focus on what matters most, that is saving the lives of children. MVI is happy to continue its years of support for St. Jude in their mission to save the lives of our most precious resource, children.
