Here is the scoop…
St. Jude not only treats children with cancer but also conducts groundbreaking research that it shares widely with doctors and scientists all over the world. And while our research has helped bring cure rates of childhood cancer all the way from 20% to 80% our goal is to reach 90% by the end of this decade.
In my video, you heard me mention that no family ever pays St. Jude for anything. We also offer our patients and families transportation, housing, schooling, emotional support, community, and a big dose of hope.
St. Jude is an extraordinary place. You can feel it when you walk down the halls. The mission is clear: save those beautiful children so they can go home and live normal lives.
And now YOU can help support St. Jude and sick children around the world with Expedia!
As you know by now, September is Childhood Cancer Awareness Month and to raise money for St. Jude, Expedia is giving away more than 150 trips. That includes 30 big dream trips, each day for the month of September. A different prize is featured daily on the Expedia Viewfinder blog. And entering to win is easy.
Here is today’s Big Dream Trip…
On the beautiful Riviera Maya in Mexico the Banyan Tree Mayakoba is a grand resort perched along the coast.
Banyan Tree Mayakoba is the epitome of luxury resort living, bringing Asian hospitality to the beautiful and idyllic Riviera Maya – where the sand is white and the water is that perfect shade of turquoise.
Here you’ll enjoy five luxurious nights in Playa del Carmen plus airfare for two up to $1500. The Banyan Tree’s all private villas are a magical place where you can experience the harmonious blend of nature and luxury at your own private pool, on the white sand beach of the Caribbean and at the luxurious outdoor pool with swim-up bar.
The flight to Cancun is less than 3 hours from Dallas and less than 2 hours from Miami – so this playground is in reach.
