Lisa Ling reports that when Hurricane Katrina struck in August 2005, about 200 kids with cancer were totally displaced right in the middle of treatment. To aid in this crisis, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis opened their doors to about 100 of them, and these children are being treated and their families are being taken care of for free.

St. Jude Children's Research Hospital—founded by actor Danny Thomas in 1962—has been treating children with cancer and other catastrophic diseases for over 40 years.

Among the children that Lisa met at St. Jude were Mason—the youngest patient taken in after Katrina—and Ronnie and Brianna, who were both undergoing chemotherapy at the time the storm struck.
