Las Vegas, NV, December 23, 2014 (Newswire.com) - Sunburst Vacations firmly believes that working together they can truly make a difference. Sunburst Vacations focuses on charitable organizations that support such important causes as child welfare, curbing domestic violence, substance abuse rehabilitation, among others. During this holiday season, the company has decided to pledge a percentage of its first quarter's sales to assist the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
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.
St. Jude researchers are published and cited more often in high impact publications than any other private pediatric oncology research institution in America. St. Jude is a place where many doctors send some of their sickest patients and toughest cases. Its a place where cutting-edge research and revolutionary discoveries happen every day. St. Jude has built America's second-largest health-care charity so the science never stops.
About 5,700 active patients are seen at St. Jude yearly, most of whom are treated on a continuing outpatient basis as part of ongoing research programs. The hospital also has 78 beds for patients requiring hospitalization during treatment. St. Jude has treated children from all 50 states and from around the world.
All patients accepted for treatment at St. Jude are treated without regard to the family's ability to pay.
“We are proud to support the St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the wonderful work they do finding cures for children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases through research and treatment," stated a company spokesman for Sunburst Vacations. "We recognize more than ever, the ongoing need for company’s to demonstrate a clear sense of social responsibility. With ongoing support, we will continue to be there, providing children relief for today and hope for tomorrow.”
