Day 2 of this project goes to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. I have a hard time imagining a worse feeling than finding out your kid has a catastrophic illness. With my sister and I having good health, my parents mostly only had to worry about the stupid things we could do on our own, which is more than enough worry for any parent. The raft of other things that come along with a child with a serious illness is a whole other thing. Nobody having to go through that should get hit with the added burden of worrying about getting the bill paid for treatment. St Jude agrees. No family who’s child is receiving treatment there ever sees a bill. That’s pretty amazing in the American healthcare system in general, but especially so when we’re talking about a research institution that only deals with catastrophic illness.
