World Child Cancer for Iphone Publisher's description
from IPG Systems Limited
The diagnosis of cancer in a child is terrifying for them and their family
The diagnosis of cancer in a child is terrifying for them and their family. It's even more heartbreaking in the developing world where only one in 10 survives compared to eight in 10 in developed countries.
Child cancer is highly curable yet in the developing world tens of thousands of children die every year because of a lack of basic treatment. Worse still most die without any effective pain relief. Poor diagnosis, lack of resources, too few specially trained medics and the mistaken belief that child cancer is too difficult to cure, results in very few children being diagnosed and fewer still surviving.
However, simple and inexpensive procedures for treating child cancer have been known to doctors for decades. World Child Cancer facilitates the sharing of expertise between developed countries and low and middle income countries. We help increase survival rates from 10% to 50% and through funding; we can provide effective palliative care and resources so that there is no need for any child to die in pain.
Use this App to follow the progress of our projects around the world, and to find out more about how this devastating illness is being faced by brave children in the developing world. You can also read and share our Twitter feed and YouTube videos. And, of course, you can learn more about how to get involved in supporting World Child Cancer in our work. Thanks for your interest!
