St .Jude
Dealing With
Cancer Introduction Http://www.StJudeDealWithCancer.Rwells/ huoon12854ga.html Created By: Rogina Wells There were many challenges along the way as far as:
Appreciation Being able to have foundations such as St. Jude where they care for nothing but the patient at no cost has helped many families tremendously. New knowledge In 2010, 569,490 died from cancer in the United States. I plan to go to college Experience Field Work! Learning Stretch "My Mentor" Future Plans Throughout society cancer has become one of the top causes of death since 2000. However, an organization such as St. Jude’s has helped combat this serious universal issue. Awareness A simple donation can be on leading way to help a patient whether they are going to have surgery, treatment, and recovery. St. Jude is an awesome foundation that only wants to help their patients, but they also help the community as well. "My Senior Project" History of Cancer What is
St. Jude?? Danny Thomas
"The Founder" Research Area Phase I Researching A Topic Phase II Finding A Mentor Phase III The Process of The Product Its Meaning:
My product and effort that I put forth means a lot to me because I wanted to do something that I would later appreciate and be proud about. Its Impact:
St. Jude dealing with cancer had a huge impact on my life and my outlook of many things that I have looked over and never really taken the time to appreciate. Why it was interesting:
i found this topic very interesting because I never really knew about cancer and I wanted to extend my curiosity. At one of our meetings i played bunco to raise money for St. Jude. Thank You for taking the time to listen to my project THESIS: Presented BY:
Rogina T. Wells Miss Angela Lee In 1977, my mentor was surprisingly diagnosed with Leukemia.This diagnoses brought a lot of sorrow and stress upon her and her family. Approximately after 10 years she successfully overcame the battle of cancer and continues to live her life thankfully. One of the oldest specimens of any type of human cancer was found in many parts of ancient females who have been mummified in the Bronze Age in 1900-1600 BC. Cancer traits even date back to approximately 2400 years ago, when they were found in the skeletal remains of the Peruvian Incas. The foundation was built because Danny Thomas promised that he would build a shrine to the saint. At first, Danny Thomas had many doubts about his foundation, but after the help of many businesses that were local and out of state, the idea of a children’s hospital grasped the attention of many. St. Jude is unlike any other pediatric treatment and research facility. Discoveries made here have completely changed how the world treats children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. With research and patient care under one roof, St. Jude is where some of today's most gifted researchers are able to do science more quickly. I also plan to go to Grambling State, while majoring in Criminal Justice Leukemia cancers make up 25% of all childhood cancers, affecting around 2,200 in the United States each year. It is estimated that nine million people will die from cancer in 2015, and 11.4 million will die in 2030, showing an expected increase in number of people with cancer. Cancer occurs when cells in a part of the body begin to grow out of control. They continue to grow and crowd out normal cells. Although there are many kinds of cancer, they all have this out-of-control growth of cells in common. St. Jude
