This week, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital announces the launch of its Web site in Spanish, www.stjude.org/espanol.

The Spanish version of the site, www.stjude.org/espanol, allows Spanish-speaking visitors to learn more about the lifesaving research at St. Jude in their native language.

The site features relevant information about St. Jude patient eligibility requirements and disease information, as well as research highlights and childhood cancer survival rates. The site also provides information on how to become St. Jude volunteers and donors through the Angeles de Esperanza (Angels of Hope) program. It includes a section for corporations and organizations that are interested in supporting St. Jude through the employee matching gift program, sponsorships and general donations.

The site also features a section about the International Outreach Program and explains how St. Jude transfers knowledge, technology, and organizational skills to its affiliate clinics in Brazil, Chile, Costa Rica, Ecuador, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and Venezuela.

"With St. Jude's outreach efforts to Mexico, Central and South America, it seemed a natural evolution that we make our information available to doctors and parents in those areas in their own language," said Raul Ribeiro, MD, Director of St. Jude International Outreach Program.

To ensure that St. Jude can continue saving the lives of children who suffer from catastrophic diseases, visitors to the site will have the opportunity to learn how they can participate in a wide variety of fund-raising events in their communities, such as the Promesa y Esperanza (Promise and Hope) radiothon fund-raising program and the FedEx/St. Jude Angels & Stars Gala.
