When Danny Thomas founded The St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in 1962, he did it with the goal to give back to a country that made his own dreams come true. His family moved to the United States from the Middle East and though he struggled early to make ends meet, he found great success in music and film.
Danny opened the first location in Memphis as a research hospital devoted to curing catastrophic diseases in children regardless of race, religion, or financial status. Through their work, the overall survival rates for childhood cancers rose from 20 percent in 2962 to 80 percent today.
Jairo Alvarez, the founder, and patriarch of Alvarez Construction Company was also an immigrant moving to the United States from Colombia at the age of 25. He only had $100 in his pocket, but put himself through college, graduated, and returned home to start his own construction company.
Years later, Jairo returned to the states and settled in the Baton Rouge area, where he built this company. He found himself drawn to the mission of St. Jude Children’s Hospitals. His children Carlos, Sebastian, and Ana have continued to honor his legacy since his passing in 2013 still spearheading the project locally.
Donations like this make it possible for families to focus on the recovery of their ill children without ever receiving a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing, or food.
