Children with Cancer in the Philippines

- Goal:$ 10000
In developed countries, a child diagnosed with cancer has an 80% chance of surviving.
Survival rates in developing countries can be as low as 10%.
Seeking specialist medicine in the Philippines usually means a long journey.
The country has over 7,100 islands, with a combined population of more than 100 million.
For the entire country, there are only about 40 pediatric oncologists, and many of them are in or near the capital city.
The odds of surviving childhood cancer in developing countries like the Philippines are significantly lower than in developed countries.
Let's aim to ensure that advanced medical treatment, diagnostic testing and social aid are provided to children with cancer, so that they feel less of both physical and mental pain.
