St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases.
In our drive to give back, Window World cares has teamed up with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The hospital has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs it makes, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.

Tammy and Todd Whitworth started Window World Cares®, the charitable arm of Window World, in 2008. Their first child, Anna Grace, was premature and spent the first days of her life in a hospital. Having experienced the strain of worrying about their child’s health, Tammy and Todd decided to partner with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. Named for the patron saint of lost causes, St. Jude takes on the toughest cases of childhood cancer and other life-threatening illnesses, and does so without regard for a family’s ability to pay. In 2010, Window World Cares was named St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital’s New Corporate Partner of the Year, and Tammy’s passion for the hospital has led to over $7 million in fundraising.
