Charity spotlight: St. Jude-Mercy affiliate

Mercy Kids is in his 14th years as a charity of the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper.

For families whose children may be diagnosed with serious medical issues – such as leukemia, hemophilia or a brain tumor – the Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center has been a calming influence. It’s allowed families to stay together here in the Ozarks, without having to travel hundreds of miles away.

The Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center is the nation’s eighth St. Jude-affiliated pediatric hematology/oncology clinic, serving children in Springfield and throughout southwest Missouri and northern Arkansas. Being a St. Jude affiliate site allows the center to enroll patients in St. Jude’s world-famous clinical research trials – right here at Mercy Kids Children’s Hospital.

Through a collaboration with St. Jude-Memphis, no family is charged for their child’s treatment at the Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center.

Those are among the many reasons why the Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper is proud to partner with the Jane Pitt Pediatric Cancer Center again this year.

The tournament, part of the PGA Tour’s annual Web.com Tour stop in Springfield, has gifted almost $14 million for children’s charities in its 27-year history, and here is an opportunity to throw your support behind this great cause again.
