Join us in honoring moms next month!

CARD

This Mother’s Day, we’re asking you partner with us to help moms like Marisol provide for their children. If you donate $50 or more by April 30th, we’ll send a card to the person of your choice.

How your gift will help

G SquareMarisol is 19, and her 4-year-old daughter, Gabriela, is being treated by our partner, the Hospital del Niño DIF Hidalgo (HNH). Gabriela has leukemia and she is one of about 100 children who will be treated for cancer this year at HNH. Marisol wants the best for her daughter – and with your help – she can ensure that Gabriela gets the best possible treatment and care.

World Child Cancer USA is partnering with HNH to subsidize drug costs, create a parent support group, improve facilities, facilitate ongoing database management, train local nurses and doctors, and to provide education for families like Marisol’s to care for their children at home once they leave the hospital.

We hope you’ll join our celebration of Mother’s Day by giving a gift in honor of your Mom or another special person in your life. Your donation will help children in Mexico to beat cancer and to make sure they have many more happy years with their families.

How to Donate

To ensure delivery on-time delivery of a Mother’s Day card (by May 8th), all donations must be received by April 30th.

When you make your donation online, please check the box, “I would like to dedicate this donation to someone.” Next, fill out the box with the person’s name and address. The link to donate online is here: http://worldchildcancer.us/donate/

Join our ‘Share with 10’ campaign on Feb. 15th for International Childhood Cancer Day

International Childhood Cancer Day is on Monday, February 15th!

Everyone knows Valentine’s Day is on Sunday, but did you know International Childhood Cancer Day is the next day on Feb. 15th?

Join us to raise awareness for children with cancer in developing countries and join our ‘share with 10’ campaign. 80% of children with cancer live in developing countries where many will be diagnosed late or not at all, drastically reducing survival rates. We’re sharing one cancer fighter’s story, Obasi, from Ghana to highlight the challenges children and families face.

International Childhood Cancer Day

Here are a few ways you can share Obasi’s story:
  • Share the picture above on your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and/or blog. Remember to tag World Child Cancer USA on Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn!
  • Change your Facebook and Twitter profile picture to Obasi’s story
  • Print out the pdf (link here – http://ow.ly/YggWR) and pass it out to friends and family
  • Print and post Obasi’s story in your workplace, neighborhood, school, or coffee shop
  • Share Obasi’s story with your family over dinner and talk about ways you can get involved with World Child Cancer USA to help
  • Email Obasi’s story with a link to World Child Cancer USA’s website and ask your friends and family to donate $10 – the cost of chemotherapy drugs for a child for 2 weeks www.worldchildcancer.us/donate

Together, we can even the odds for children with cancer. Thank you!



‘Share with 10′ on International Childhood Cancer Day on Feb. 15

International Childhood Cancer Day

Survival rates for children with cancer in the developing world are as low as 10% when in the developed world approximately 80% of children with cancer will survive. This inequality in cancer care for children should not exist.

Support us on International Childhood Cancer Day on February 15th in our ‘Share with 10′ campaign and help us to even the odds so that all children with cancer have the chance of a future.

It is very simple to get involved simply share the Maaria and Obasi story with 10 of your friends or family across your social media and ask them to ‪#‎sharewith10‬. Thank you so much for your support. Together ‪let’s even the odds for children with cancer across the developing world! You can download the PDF here. Make sure you share what you do on our Facebook and Twitter.

To find out more information on how you get involved please visit: http://worldchildcancer.us/get-involved/events/international-childhood-cancer-day/

If you would prefer to support us by making a donation please visit: http://worldchildcancer.us/donate/. For just $75 you could fund a round of chemotherapy for a child in Mexico; currently a cost that families have to bear and simply cannot afford.
