“Help me find my way in life, and I will build you a shrine.”  
    – Danny Thomas
 

That was the plea made by Danny Thomas to St. Jude, patron saint of the hopeless.  It was a pledge he fulfilled in 1962 when Thomas founded St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

Thomas (1912-1991) was a entertainer struggling to support his young family when he prayed to St. Jude for guidance.  Within a year, he was a successful nightclub entertainer in Chicago.  

In 1953, the popular television series Make Room for Daddy began its 13-season run.  Thomas starred as a traveling comedian who tried to carve out time for his family.  His success continued in films and as a producer.

Through his years of success, Thomas never forgot his promise to St. Jude.  The idea for a children’s hospital grew because Thomas felt “no child should die in the dawn of life.”  He expanded the center’s mission to include research into serious childhood diseases.  

Danny Thomas brought joy to audiences everywhere as an entertainer.  But perhaps his greatest legacy is the thousands of young lives saved  by the promise he kept – the promise that founded one of the world’s leading children’s hospitals.
