toys for Filipino kids with cancer by US students
In 2013-14, Asia America Initiative successfully completed treatment of our first 20 child cancer patients in the Philippines with a 100% success rate for healing. In addition we have kept alive 8 out of 9 children born with rare genetic diseases. We thank God for watching over the children, doctors, nurses and medical suppliers who all conbtributed to the program's success. Our ability to provide the supplemental care, nutrition, transportation and artistic supplies came from our many heartfelt donors and partners in the Global Giving community.
Dr. Maryanne Chiong who is the head of Orphan Disease Research and Treatment at the National Institutes of Health in Manila, says, " The Asia America Initiave partnership with our hospitals and medical specialists has made the difference between life and death for 20 precious children. The cancer patients and eight other children born with rare genetic diseases that require ongoing and unique care have been provided the gift of life. We are so grateful to all donors living overseas -- from pharmaceutical companies to private citizens and students -- who sacrificed even a day or week's worth of coffee and donuts to send a modest but meaningful contribution have added up to a giant act of good will. Their action assured our children's survival."
At present AAI is seeking the financial support to purchase medicine so we can choose 20 new children from impoverished communities whose families would not be able to pay for the cost of their treatment. Oncology [cancer] medicines that overcome varieties of cancer that most affect children -- such as lymphoma and leukemia -- are in short supply in the United Stats and internationally.
We extend our heartfelt gratitude. We seek your support in this ongoing mission to assist these wonderful doctors like Dr. Maryanne who otherwise would lack the resources to save more children's lives.
