Stuff About Me:

Tanzania is a country of over 40 million people, but for years it had only one cancer center, the "Ocean Road Cancer Center" in Dar Es Salaam.  Cancer now kills as many people in Tanzania as does all infectious diseases combined, but very few cancer victims receive any treatment even though many of the cancers are potentially curable.  Palliative care is also not available for most cancer patients. 

I have stood in a ward full of children with Burkett's lymphoma at Ocean Road.  Their mothers sleep on the floor next to them.  Most of these children can be cured if given the proper treatment, but most of the children in Tanzania with this disease do not get any or adequate treatment.  I hope we can change that.
