Support Diagnostic Testing for Cancer Patients With A Cup of Chai
July 20, 2016
BENEFITING: THE MAX FOUNDATION
Chai for Cancer USA is a fundraising initiative of The Max Foundation (www.themaxfoundation.org) designed to engage our community in increasing global access to treatment, care and support for people living with cancer. Through Chai for Cancer USA, we aim to raise awareness about the needs of cancer survivors while raising funds for their support.
This year, Chai for Cancer USA will support an area of great need for our patients in India: gateway diagnostic testing. Diagnostic testing in India amounts to $50 per test, which patients require 4 times a year – to many, this is an impossible expense. Providing this relatively inexpensive diagnostic testing ensures that patients receive the right medicine at the right time, which has an incredible impact in the life of a patient.
Community members across the United States can get involved by volunteering to host a Chai Adda (tea party) that benefits people living with cancer in targeted countries around the world, by contributing to a particular Chai Adda host's online campaign or by hosting your own virtual Chai Adda through Crowdrise. For more information about Chai for Cancer USA, write to email@example.com.
If you are unable to host or attend an adda in person, you can support our virtual adda by making a donation online and raising a cup of chai at home in honor of millions facing cancer around the world!
If you wish to support a specific Chai Adda, view 'The Team' to find your host's fundraiser. And remember to ask your employer if they have a matching gifts program!
Thank you, in advance, for your support in making Chai for Cancer USA a success!
