Just a little detail ... because until I entered Childhood Cancer Land, I didn't know:
St. Jude Research Hospital is not a "when no one else can treat you, come here," hospital. It is an amazing research hospital, but it is a research hospital.
What this means: if your child has relapsed for the second time, as is the case with a friend of mine, and all of your doctors are saying, "Err, we don't know what to do," the only way you're going to St. Jude is if they happen to have a study open that your child qualifies for.
Great hospital, not disputing that. But still and all, my money goes to Curesearch. (And Make-a-Wish and Candlelighters.)
I really really hate this effing disease.
