Challenge

Childhood cancer does not know barriers of any kind, in Mexico there are many low-income families who live this reality. The lack of financial resources, access to social security and medical services means that more children and young people with cancer cannot access adequate treatment. Treatment costs include medications, surgeries, lab exams and the indirect costs of transport, food and lodging. Loss of employment and incurrent of debts are also common.

Solution

Each year Casa de la Amistad serve an average of 650 children nationwide. We provide an integral treatment and psychological guidance, permitting children to emotionally heal from the experience, and grant educational assistance, assuring they dont fall behind and continue in school. Help us give more children and families the immediate and long-term resources they need to live full and happy lives.

Long-Term Impact

Our own experience as well as many studies on childhood cancer conclude that financial and social assistance to families are effective in improving pediatric cancer outcomes and in saving lives. Casa de la Amistad help low income families overcome financial as well as social hardship and get more children into the hands of pediatric oncologists. Your donation means a parent can give their child the opportunity to heal, so their children have the opportunity to dream about their future.
