About World Child Cancer
We have a proven model that significantly changes the survival rate through “twinning” partnerships between hospitals in the developed and the developing worlds and critical support services.
In the developing world, the survival rate for children with cancer can be as low as 10% vs. 80%+ in the developed world. Up to 50% of childhood cancers can be cured by using simple and inexpensive treatments and procedures that have been in place for years in the US and elsewhere. As 80% of those afflicted with cancer reside in poorer countries, THOUSANDS OF CHILDREN DIE NEEDLESSLY EACH YEAR.
World Child Cancer globally operates 9 programs. In 2016, almost 6,000 children were helped and 3,800 medical professionals were trained around the world.
World Child Cancer USA, based in Denver, CO is a 501c3 public charity.
Our mission is to improve cancer diagnosis, treatment and care for children across the developing world, redressing the global inequality in the treatment of cancer.
Our vision is a world where every child with cancer has equal access to the best treatment and care.
