Help Children with Cancer

Children Outside Ward

Dear friends,

I wanted to follow up on the letter I recently mailed you asking you to support our work. Now through December 31st you have an opportunity to double your impact and help a child like Oscar fight cancer.

Oscar was just six years old when he was treated in a hospital supported by World Child Cancer. Thanks to supporters like you, Oscar is now twelve years old and cancer free. Just $1,000 can save a child’s life. Today, if you donate $500 – thanks to matched funding – you can fund the cost of a course of chemotherapy for another child like Oscar.

Oscar, email

Your gift to World Child Cancer USA will give children in the developing world the chance to survive cancer and help us ensure that children are able to access life-saving treatment, no matter where they live. Please join us this holiday season to double the amount of life-saving chemotherapy treatment offered, the number of local doctors and nurses trained, and the number of children diagnosed and treated.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.

Best wishes and many thanks,

Scott Howard, MD
World Child Cancer USA Chairman

p.s. Please give by December 31st and your donation will double!


Chairman’s Message

No Child Should Suffer

Childhood cancer is devastating for families and communities, especially in low- and middle-income countries, where children have little access to diagnosis and treatment. Throughout my career as a pediatric oncologist, I have had the privilege of working with international teams to improve survival rates in Asia, Africa, and Latin America. I have seen first hand how World Child Cancer’s projects improve survival rates and save lives.

As the chair of World Child Cancer USA, I look forward to helping more children with cancer and ensuring that children have access to the best possible treatment and care, regardless of where they were born. I thank you for your support and for partnering with us to save lives. Your contributions make it possible for us to subsidize the purchase of life-saving medicines, pain relievers, training of local nurses and doctors, delivery of awareness campaigns about the signs and symptoms of childhood cancer to local communities, and to support families throughout the diagnosis, treatment and care of their child – and ultimately improve survival rates for children with cancer in the developing world. Thank you!

I would like to share some exciting news with you: this holiday season the Board of Directors and I are personally matching contributions. From November 17th to December 31st, your donation will go twice as far and will have double the impact. I hope you will choose to donate to World Child Cancer USA and together we can give more children in the developing world a greater chance at surviving cancer.

Thank you again for supporting World Child Cancer USA.

Best wishes and many thanks,

Scott Howard, MD
