The Foundation for Cancer Care in Tanzania is working with partners throughout Tanzania and around the world to impact cancer in northern Tanzania, a region that currently has almost no cancer care. As things stand, individuals with cancer in northern Tanzania are often diagnosed very late, if they are diagnosed at all. Even when the cancers are caught, many patients have no feasible treatment options since the existing cancer care in the region is so limited.
Your donation of any size is a building block in a new cancer care system in northern Tanzania. This system will bring together programs for prevention, education, screening, early detection, diagnosis, treatment and palliative care to ensure that children and adults with cancer receive the high-quality care that is the right of every human.
FCCT’s immediate priority is to build the Cancer Care Institute, which will start as a medical oncology clinic for pediatric patients and eventually scale up to treat adults. Simultaneously, we will build up programs for prevention, early detection and palliation. Your support will help us impact cancer at each of these levels, and for that we can’t thank you enough.
