We believe every child has the right to fulfil her aspirations and our credo has always been ‘Once a St. Judes child is always a St. Judes child’. In keeping with this vision, our new vertical St. Judes for Life has been established in the memory of Mrs. Rani Vicaji, to ensure that these children who have won the battle against cancer are able to fulfil their potential. They come from underprivileged families who had made great sacrifices to ensure that the child was treated successfully for cancer. We have learnt of several new challenges they may face while they try to become self-reliant and independent. To this end our new vertical, St. Judes for Life will continue to provide support to our recovered as need arises.
We believe that the children, who have been nurtured at our Centres to recover from cancer, are exceptionally brave and special and have a lifelong bond with St. Judes. As their Go To organisation in times of need, St. Judes for Life will always be available to provide support and guidance throughout their lives, to help them reach their potential and fulfil their aspirations.
To ensure that timely and appropriate assistance is available to St. Judes alumni to complete their education, maintain good health and lead successful lives. From the time of their enrolment on completing five years since diagnosis of cancer, till they are independent and self-sufficient, St. Judes for Life will be available to provide appropriate intervention, directly or through experienced partners, to support, mentor and enable them to become upright contributing members of society.
