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.
