Radiation therapy is curative for diseases such as cervical cancer, the most common cancer diagnosed in Tanzanian women. Due to the lack of resources, this treatable disease claims many young lives. Radiation is also a very effective treatment to reduce suffering from advanced cancer-related symptoms such as pain, bleeding and difficulty breathing or swallowing.
Mira is also working with Radiating Hope to coordinate the Greater Horn Oncology Symposium (GHOS) from March 25-29, 2014. GHOS is designed to raise awareness of cancer care in east Africa and features presentations by internationally renowned radiation oncologists as well as local cancer specialists. All raised funds from the symposium will go towards the cancer center.
As a symbolic step, we will climb Mt. Kilimanjaro with about 30 individuals dedicated to scaling the difficulties of accessing cancer care in the developing world.
Please join us in building Moshi's first cancer center!
