Actress and activist Yara Shahidi is using her voice to help fight childhood cancer this holiday season.
Shahidi has joined other celebs in their support of St. Jude in the fight to end childhood cancer through their annual Thanks and Giving campaign. The Grown-ish star becomes the youngest national spokesperson to join the campaign.
“This is my first year being a part of the Thanks and Giving campaign for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital,” said Yara Shahidi. “St. Jude has always held personal meaning for the entirety of my family, as the hospital cared for our cousin Brian and his family. St. Jude goes above and beyond treating children from across the U.S. and around the world who are fighting cancer, sickle cell and other life-threatening diseases. If you can, please join me and support the children of St. Jude, and together, we can help end childhood cancer.”
St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other life-threatening diseases.
It is the only National Cancer Institute-designated Comprehensive Cancer Center devoted solely to children.
