American is proud to sponsor St. Jude as part of the American Airlines Kids in Need program. St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is internationally recognized for its pioneering work in finding cures and saving children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases. St. Jude is the first and only pediatric cancer center to be designated as a Comprehensive Cancer Center by the National Cancer Institute. Founded by the late entertainer Danny Thomas and based in Memphis, Tenn., St. Jude freely shares its discoveries with scientific and medical communities around the world. St. Jude is the only pediatric cancer research center where families never pay for treatment that is not covered by insurance. No child is ever denied treatment.
AAdvantage members play a major role in helping American support some of the world’s foremost organizations dedicated to caring for children by donating their unused miles through American’s Miles for Kids in Need®. If you can help us replenish some of these miles, we (and the kids) will really appreciate it.
