Who We Are


Why are childhood cancer survival rates so low in the developing world? Poor diagnosis, along with too few specially trained doctors and nurses and the mistaken belief that child cancer is too difficult to cure, combine to create very low survival rates.
Here’s the good news: In fact, childhood cancer is curable even in resource-poor countries. It’s possible to save the lives of 50–60% of children with easily treatable malignancies with relatively simple and inexpensive drugs and procedures that have been known to doctors for decades.
