St.Jude Children's Research Hospital is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made there have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly, and of course, save the lives of kids with cancer.

If you are one of our wonderful Acadiana Partners in Hope, you might have thought about visiting St Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis to see where all the miracles occur. Yes, it is a possibility! Check out the guidelines for your visit to St Jude. They even have driving guides and maps of where to park. It's a huge place, so you really need to be focused when you get there. Tours are by by appointment only, so be sure to call in advance to 901-578-2042 or 1-800-877-5833, or by emailing hospitaltours@stjude.org.

You can see the Danny Thomas Pavilion, where the St Jude founder is actually buried, go to the Gift Shop, where wonderful St Jude merchandise is available, and see the miles and miles of memory bricks dedicated to the children of St Jude. It is an absolutely unbelievable and inspiring place.

I think it is so wonderful that us regular folks can visit St Jude, because that doesn't always happen at other hospitals. It is a place of hope, and joy, and light, and they make every single person welcome. So, if you want to see where the real miracles occur, plan a trip to St Jude, and know that with your help, we all are a part of this beautiful, wonderful place.
