In mid-April 2000, Sherri Worth was faced with some very unsettling news about Pate Memorial Clinic’s future with a competitor potentially moving into the area. Worth was the assistant administrator at Pate Memorial Hospital (PMH) and was also responsible for the Pate Health Clinic (PHC). A study by the competitor was being done to see whether sufficient demand existed to establish a clinic 5 blocks north of PHC. The two biggest concerns in regards to the new competition were:

When most people think of Christmas, they think of family, presents, and happiness. Christmas day in 2012 was very different for Phoenix and his family. At just seventeen months old, Phoenix became a patient at St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis Tennessee. He was diagnosed with bilateral retinoblastoma, a cancerous tumor that affects the eyes. Five year old Phoenix had no control over his eyes, and the average child should have full control by age one. After months of undergoing chemotherapy, Phoenix’s cancer was in remission. “Physically he’s doing good, emotionally he’s doing good”, said Pamela. “I know St. Jude is the reason he has both his eyes. I tell everyone everywhere I go, St. Jude is amazing. I know God has to be in the midst of it. I don’t think I would have my grandson if we had not gotten to St. Jude” (Qtd. in St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital).

Cancer, the leading cause of death by disease past infancy among children in the United States, causes an estimate of 15,780 children to be diagnosed with the disease and of that same number, 1,960 will die from the disease in the United States (Cancer in Children and Adolescents ). A variety of cancerous diseases contributes to causes which can end a child's life as soon as it appeared.

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, founded in 1962, is a pediatric treatment and research facility focused on children’s catastrophic diseases. The hospital costs about $2 million a day to run no family ever pays for their child to go to St. Jude. I chose this organization because St. Jude does a remarkable job taking care of children in need. If I ever volunteer at a hospital, St. Jude would be at the top of my list along with Children’s Medical Center.
