Advancing Cancer Care

RadiatingHope provides state-of-the-art technology, training, and ongoing support to radiation clinics in the developing world where our impact will save the lives of countless cancer patients.

Today, cancer is the leading cause of death in Africa, killing more people than HIV/AIDS, malaria and tuberculosis combined. Radiating Hope is dedicated to addressing the lack of cancer care in Africa.


Radiation therapy is a vital component of most cancer treatments. Approximately 60-70% of all cancer patients in the US will receive some form of radiation therapy. Most people living in developing nations do not have access to this crucial treatment, due to a lack of radiation equipment.


In the United States there is one qualified radiation machine per 100,000-200,000 people. In most African nations, access to a qualified radiation machine is drastically low, anywhere from one machine per one million people to one machine per 70 million people. There are nine countries in Africa, which don't have a qualified machine at all.  


RadiatingHope is dedicated to changing the landscape of cancer care and leveling the playing field in developing countries. No patient should be without potentially life-saving treatment simply because the technology is not affordable.


The three major components to our work include:

  • Raising funds and awareness through our mountain climbs, online donations, prayer flag sales and local events.
  • Working with leading medical experts and academic centers in the fields of radiation oncology & medical physics to deliver proven techniques & workflows that ensure quality, safety, and efficiency.
  • Forging partnerships with socially responsible equipment manufacturers with complimentary missions to improve access to life-saving cancer therapies globally. 


RadiatingHope knows that it's not just about placing technology where it's needed. We strive to create sustainable change as we educate communities, preserve cultural values, and build community relationships that will maximize the impact of each local clinic.
