Help a Senegalese woman battle cervical cancer.
In the developing world, cancer kills more people than malaria, AIDS/HIV, and tuberculosis combined. Cervical cancer is a leading cause of cancer related deaths among women in the developing world. The majority of women living in impoverished countries do not have access to life saving radiation treatment.
Thankfully, a group of radiation oncologists from the United States have come together, treating and even curing women of cervical cancer in Senegal. Using a High Dose Brachytherapy Afterlader machine (HDR) donated by Radiating Hope, women can be cured of their cancer after only three treatments. Besides treating patients, Radiating Hope's volunteer physicians train local physicians and import much needed medical equipment to the Cancer Center.
With your help, a woman in the prime of life can be cured of this disease.
You can help. Just $100.00 helps provide a radiation treatment for a women with cervical cancer.
Radiating Hope's mission is to bring modern, curative cancer treatment to developing countries.
