Summary

The growing burden of childhood cancer calls for timely, accurate, and coordinated interventions for the well-being and recovery of children. In our Children's Hospital we treat: Leukemia, Tumors, Retinoblastoma, Sarcomas, Lymphomas and neoplasms. Each case that undergoes timely treatment and interventions represents longer survival, longer life expectancy, and decreased social impact on children, their parents, and their families. Help us improve the quality of care!

Challenge

Childhood cancer is a very aggressive malignant neoplasm that is difficult to treat and can cause death. There are many types of cancer treatment. The types of treatment a child with cancer receives depends on the type of cancer and how advanced it is. Common treatments are: surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, and stem cell transplantation.

Solution

The San Vicente Fundacion Children's Hospital has an area dedicated exclusively to the diagnosis and treatment of childhood cancer. Our Hospital has the largest number of cases and experience in cancer treatments as complex as ocular cancer. Approximately 82% of the participating population are low income families. Help us so that more children can receive comprehensive treatments.

Long-Term Impact

Annually I treat approximately 700 children with different types of Cancer. We want to continue to have a positive impact on the lives of children with cancer. With the money we collect together, children with cancer in Colombia can access a better health service, avoid removal of any of their members or death.
