2018 St. Jude's Dream Home is Underway!
St. Jude Children's Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Everything they do is centered on the mission Finding Cures: Saving Children. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries they makes, so one child saved by St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. St. Jude has helped push the childhood cancer survival rate from less that 20% when they opened to 80% today. They will not stop until no child dies from cancer.
The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is a community-wide fundraiser that benefits the lifesaving mission of St. Jude. When builders, subcontractors, vendors and other campaign sponsors donate their time and labor to build a home, they are able to minimize the cost of building the home and increase the finds donated to St. Jude. This helps ensure that families NEVER receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food - because all family should worry about is helping their child live.
This year, Michael Maloney, from the TV show Extreme Home Makeover is joining the amazing group of designers to support the 2018 Dream Home. The home will be located at Legends Pointe in O'Fallon, MO.
The ground breaking has already started and more than 190 people attended the breakfast. They received 100% donations from everyone at the event and over $24,500 in monetary donations to give to St. Jude along with the house.
