Mexico Fall 2019 Report

Our largest endeavor this year was funding and placing a large medical container
in collaboration with ProjectCure. This container had medical equipment that is
crucial to the care of children with cáncer and was valued at near one million
dollars. 

This process took months to achieve and requiered the expertise of many people.The communities from Xalapa and Rio Blanco assisted with unloading the container and placing the equipment in the hospitals. The container of medial equipment arrived to Hospital Regional Rio Blanco and Hospital General Xalapa in Veracruz. 
In 2019 we developed our first patient family education video in Mexico, which was
translated into 9 local languages. The response to the initial videos was very positive and
therefore we aim to produce three more videos focused on different areas of home care for
children with cancer and translate them into eight indigenous languages. The videos will also be in Spanish so they can be used for all patient populations as the aim is to increase parent understanding of their child’s cancer, complications of chemotherapy and the importance of chemotherapy compliance.
We have continued the antibiotic and antifungal program in Oaxaca and Pachuca,
we donated aproximatly 60 amphothericine B a medication that is exclusively use
for high risk fungal infections. We supported the craft Project in Oaxaca for parents
support group. We assisted with distribution educational material aimed that
improving dental care and nutrition for children with cancer
Patients cases revision was continue with 20 different doctors around the country

Dr. Garcia atended the International Society for Pediatric Oncology in Lyon France.
During this meeting she was nominated to represent Latin American in the Young
Investigator´s Committee, a committee that is dedicated to identifying the many
medical and social needs of pediatric cancer as well as research projects that can
improve outcomes for pediatric cancer patients in many parts of the world
