Meet Jasmine

Dear Friend, 
  
You subscribed to email updates from Cancer Care for Children in The Philippines by World Child Cancer, a project on GlobalGiving.

4-year old Jasmine travelled with her father to the city of Davao, Mindanao, from the neighbouring island of Cebu. Jasmine had been sick and having difficulties with her sight from a very young age and was consequently unable to talk or walk by herself when she arrived at the Hospital.  

She was diagnosed by the local team, led by Dr Mae Dolendo. Once her family knew that she had retinoblastoma and would need her left eye removed to save her life, her mother left the family.  Jasmine and her father were able to stay at the House of Hope accommodation provided for families of children treated at the hospital. After Jasmine finished chemotherapy she started walking and talking.   

Through mentoring and supporting salaries of hospital staff, we can strengthen the shared care centres and, with your help, continue to help hundreds more children like Jasmine to access the treatment and care they need on Mindanao. Mindanao Islandhas a population of 27 million and is the second largest island in the Philippines. 

World Child Cancer will be continuing the programme, spreading the awareness of childhood cancer and aiming to ensure every child receives an accurate diagnosis and the best possible care.  

Thank you for helping to give children with cancer the gift of growing up!
