St. Jude Children's Research
Hospital is unlike any other treatment and research facility
anywhere. The breakthroughs and discoveries made there have changed
the way the world treats children with cancer and other illnesses.
St. Jude accepts all patients, regardless of the ability to pay for
treatment, making it America's third-largest health care charity.
All proceeds of Lincoln's Trail to St. Jude will go directly to this
research hospital to benefit the numerous children who are treated
