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 there.
