The Cyr Family Charitable Foundation will now be the newest sponsor of St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. Feeling blessed by all that life had offered to them, Steven and Le Ann Cyr formed their foundation as a way of giving back. They lend sponsorships to Christian-‐based charities, often those that serve our Military or are focused on turning our youth into strong, accomplished individuals. Some of the charities they sponsor include the Wounded Warrior Project, Haven for Hope, the San Antonio Food Bank, and the Sister Project.
And now St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital has added the list of charities that the Cyr Family Charitable Foundation supports. St. Jude’s is committed to becoming a world leader in the advancement of cures and preventions for ailing diseases that strike children and infants across the globe. The scientists and physicians at St. Jude’s give exceptional care to every child who needs it, never turning away a sick child for any reason. The quality of every child’s life is a priority to St. Jude’s, which is why they share their knowledge worldwide. No matter which country a sick child resides in, he or she is able to reap the benefits of St. Jude’s scientific findings.
The Cyr Family Charitable Foundation is giving children a tremendous gift by choosing to sponsor St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital. The dedication and motivation that the staff of St. Jude’s has is what makes the hospital one of the most respected and well-‐known research hospitals on the map. Receiving sponsorships is crucial to St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital since they don’t accept payment from the families of their patients. Just like children with life-‐threatening illnesses depend on St. Jude’s, St. Jude’s depends on sponsorships from generous organizations like the Cyr Family Charitable Fund.
Le Ann Cyr says, "I have been blessed to be able to help St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in trying to find a cure for children's cancer. There is nothing more precious than the life of a child."
The Cyrs encourage volunteer work with the simple motto that “those who help others are happier and live longer.” They should know, since helping others and giving to society is a large part of what they do. Steven and Le Ann Cyr have many grateful recipients, including one man who quoted Matt 35:25 in a testimonial. “I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink...” In picking that verse, he was definitely spot on.
