MEMPHIS (AP) – Former President Bill Clinton says research being done at St. Jude Children's Research Hospital in Memphis is helping increase the survival rate for children who have cancer.

Clinton visited patients and their parents at the hospital Friday before heading to nearby Horn Lake, Miss. for the unveiling of a new electric car.

Clinton also spoke with doctors and praised them for their work on the Pediatric Cancer Genome Project. The project is attempting to find better ways to treat diseases that affect children, including cancers of the eye, blood, brain and nervous system.

The hospital, founded by the late actor Danny Thomas, treats child cancer patients from all over the world. It also hosts foreign doctors, who then apply what they learned when they return to their home countries.
