About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital
 

 
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since the hospital opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent, and we won’t stop until no child dies from cancer. St. Jude freely shares the discoveries it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live. Join the St. Jude mission here, liking St. Jude on Facebook (facebook.com/stjude) and following us on Twitter (@stjude).

REGION 8 USA GYMNASTICS LEVEL 7 & 8 CHAMPIONSHIPS charity is The Pat Summitt Foundation

 
 
Region 8 is proud to announce the selection of The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund, a fund of The Community Foundation of Middle Tennessee, as the designated charity for the Level 7 & 8 Championships April 20-22, 2012 in Kissimmee, FL at the Heritage Park’s Exhibition Hall. The home base of the Fund—Nashville, Tennessee— is located inside Region 8.
 The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund believes no family should have to hear a diagnosis like Pat’s early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type. The Fund will make grants to nonprofits which provide:
·      education and awareness of Alzheimer's, its onset and treatment
·      support services to patients, their families and caregivers
·      research to treat, prevent, cure, and ultimately eradicate this disease
 
Talking with Danielle Donehew, leadership volunteer with The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund, “Pat Summitt is a true champion on and off the basketball court.  As she faces her toughest opponent, we are extremely thankful for the commitment of the USA Gymnastics Region 8 leadership for Joining Pat’s Team.  Please accept our sincere thanks for your efforts in supporting The Pat Summitt Foundation Fund through your Level 7 & 8 Championships.  Thank you for promoting awareness of dementia and Alzheimer’s disease coupled with financial support to invest on the front lines of research, treatment, and caregiving initiatives.  Best wishes for your event! “ 
 
Contributions to the Fund are tax deductible. More information can be found at www.PatSummitt.org
