Hillary Clinton visits St. Jude hospital

MEMPHIS, Tenn. (AP) – Hillary Rodham Clinton is visiting St. Jude Children’s Hospital in Memphis.

Clinton’s visit on Thursday is at least the second time she has visited St. Jude. She also visited when she was first lady.

St. Jude is considered a leading researcher of cancer and other life-threatening diseases that affect children. The hospital says it is working to increase the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade.

Clinton is attending the opening of the Marlo Thomas Center for Global Education and Collaboration. Thomas is an actress and daughter of St. Jude founder Danny Thomas.

Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing and food.

Clinton, a former U.S. senator and secretary of state, has yet to announce whether she will run for president in 2016.
