Approximately 10,000+ children under the age of 15 are diagnosed with Cancer every year. About 1,500 of them will die from the disease. St. Louis Children's Hospital is working year around to fight the disease that claims so many innocent lives every single day. With a mission statement of 'doing what is right for children,' STLCH is a dedicated facility that provides 258 beds, employs over 3,000, and overall treats over 275,000 patients every year.
Ranked among the nation's best, STLCH provides the best treatment available, regardless of ability to pay, in a warm and secure environment. They are constantly pioneering new frontiers in pediatric care, research and education. The vision of STLCH is to be the hallmark for quality pediatric care within the region, as well as nationally and internationally. As the flagship for a growing, integrated pediatric health-care network, they will lead the development of innovative, cost-effective approaches in prevention, primary care and specialty services, with the ultimate goal of improving the health of all children.
Over the past 12 years, Brent Bergheger Family Foundation has raised over $180,000 for cancer research at St. Louis Children's. We need your help and support in making that number even larger! Donate today!
