It's the mission of those at St. Jude to first fight cancer and then repair the damage.
"The physical therapists are involved in helping these patients recover their strength, their endurance, their functional capacity," said Dr. Stephen Morris, the director of Rehabilitation Services
Cancer can devastate the body leaving the child with new challenges.
"For some of these kids they may have difficulty in walking, they've lost a limb and have been given a prosthetic limb, they have to learn how to use that. Some of these kids particularly the kids with brain tumors have balance problems and the physical therapy helps these kids regain or recover their balance and their agility," said Dr. Morris.
The rehabilitation center at St. Jude was created to help the children recover.
"This was carefully designed so the surroundings could be used as part of the therapy environment. The kids are asked to walk toward particular paintings, they are asked to identify particular animals or what's in the paintings because these kids may have cognitive issues," said Dr. Morris.
"The walls are painted with happy murals. The staff is incredibly friendly and upbeat," said Kelly Church, the mother of a St. Jude patient.
"The families feed off of the vibes that we give," said Angel Parker, a nurse at St. Jude.
"Everyone here knows St. Jude is making a difference in saving these children's lives. Their work won't be done until 100% of the kids are cured," said Kelly.
It costs $1.8 million a day to run the hospital.
