THE STORY:

In developing nations, cancer kills more people than HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria COMBINED

RadiatingHope provides technology, training, and support to cancer clinics in Africa. Currently, we are seeking the addition of an HDR (High-Dose Rate Brachytherapy) machine at Institut Curie in Dakar, Senegal. This machine will save the lives of many women living with cervical and breast cancer near Dakar, Senegal and far beyond. 

Women suffer disproportianly from this tragic lack of access to proper care. Cervical and breast cancer are highly treatable and in most cases CURBALE when diagnosed and treated in a timely fashion. Unfortunately, most women who develop these diseases are not able to access basic cancer detection and treatment devices, which could easily save their lives.

According to the World Health Organization, approximately 34% of cancer cases for women in West Africa are cervical cancer. At Institut Curie, this number is even higher, at approximately 40%. Only with the combination of the proper treatment devices, training, and support can this 40% of the women at Institut Curie be CURED

We cannot bring back those lives that have already been lost, but we can work toward preventing those unnecessary losses in the future. Please join us and help save a life today. Every dollar of your donation will go toward the equipment cost and is fully tax deductible.
