For folks who have not had an opportunity to visit the hospital, we can tell you – it’s an AMAZING place full of hope and healing. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is one of the world’s premier pediatric cancer research centers. Known around the world as the hospital without walls, St. Jude freely shares groundbreaking research and treatments with the global medical community.
Everyone who takes a tour of the hospital gets an opportunity to see the “ABCs of Cancer” wall. This is a wall where the alphabet has been transformed into writings by the patents into mini stories about cancer. St. Jude created the wall so patients could have an alphabet of their own that reflects the kids’ feelings and experiences while having a catastrophic illness.
These hand-written poems are moving, sad and even humorous as they give you an inside look as some of the different emotions and attitudes the patients experience during their personal journeys.
