Help The World’s Bravest Kids Get Back Home Even Faster

Athena Snow        September 1, 2022

We are proud to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® a place so many kids call home while they fight cancer and other life threating disease. Each year, approximately 16,000 children and teens in the U.S. are diagnosed with cancer. One in five of these children won’t survive. It’s time for that statistic to change.

This September we join St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® in recognizing Childhood Cancer Awareness Month – thirty days of honoring those impacted by childhood cancer—the children and their families.

Two years ago Coldwell Banker started the CB Supports St. Jude program where agents participating in the program make a donation for every home sale or purchase they complete. In our first year we donated half a million dollars to St. Jude and are on track to match that same amount in 2022. Donations from agents within our Gen Blue network help to cover costs for patients and their families while in treatment.

For almost 60 years, St. Jude has been on the frontlines of research, care and treatment of childhood cancer. Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20% when they opened to more than 80% today. While this progress is incredible, 43 children in the U.S. diagnosed with cancer every day, and St. Jude won’t stop until no child dies from cancer, no matter where they live.
