oin us in supporting treatment for childhood cancers in Tanzania. Our friend Dennis Rutowicz is running the TCS New York City Marathon on Sunday, Nov. 5. He has teamed up with IMA World Health and Tumaini la Maisha, one of our nonprofit partners supporting the Pediatric Oncology Ward at Muhimbili National Hospital in Tanzania. Your donations will provide chemotherapy drugs to treat childhood cancers, important nutrition for children undergoing treatment and training for health care workers.
More than 85 percent of childhood cancer occurs in developing countries, such as Tanzania. Lack of access to health care contributes to poor survival rates in these countries.
Burkitt’s Lymphoma is most common in children living in sub-Saharan Africa and is related to the Epstein-Barr virus. Symptoms usually include swelling and distortion of facial bones and tumors that can grow quickly, sometimes doubling their size in 18 hours.
