BACKGROUND: The St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is a community service project to benefit the lifesaving work at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. It is one that everyone can get behind and support. The Grand Prize of the St. Jude Dream Home Giveaway is a beautiful 3,100 square ft. house, built by Drippé Construction with an estimated value of $415,000 in the Miller’s Reserve Community in Topeka, KS.

WHY: St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Our purpose is clear: Finding cures. Saving children.® 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 St. Jude 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.
