About Us

Our vision

Families are often overwhelmed in their search for reliable health information related to their child’s disease and treatment. Because childhood cancer is rare, many families are not able to find trusted resources. Together offers families comprehensive medical information, supportive care resources, and shared stories of hope, healing and experience. 

Together also offers resources that encompass a range of cancer experiences, including long-term survivors and bereaved parents. All people touched by childhood cancer deserve a community where they can learn, connect, and support one another.

Because of its mission and resources, St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is able to offer Together to families regardless of where they are treated.

It is crucial that parents and patients have reliable and useful health information, educational resources, and the perspective of others who are affected by pediatric cancer.

Our purpose

Together is a comprehensive online resource dedicated to pediatric cancer patients and their families. We provide trustworthy, up-to-date medical information and connect users with personally relevant topics in a clear, easy to use format. Together focuses on providing content that appeals to a variety of preferred learning styles and offers resources that families can use throughout the entire cancer journey.

Together is an extension of Dr. James Downing’s vision as president and CEO of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. As a global leader in patient and family-centered care in childhood cancer, St. Jude seeks to move beyond the walls of its hospital and affiliate clinics to offer a trusted resource and community to families worldwide, no matter where children are treated.
