We Create a Special World Together
Every child deserves a chance at a life filled with happiness and health. When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the disease not only changes the child’s life, but the entire family’s life. Coping with the life-threatening illness along with emotional turmoil is a great challenge. Aside from the physical pain and emotional challenges inflicted by cancer, treating this disease is very expensive, often posing financial hardships on families seeking quality treatment for a child with cancer. At ISCC, a kids’ cancer charity, we believe that no child suffering from cancer should be left untreated. Thus, our purpose is to globally increase access to treatment for underprivileged children with cancer. We are strongly committed to supporting these children and their families during the healing process. Our international cancer society is publicly supported through donations from individuals, charitable foundations and businesses that recognize the urgent need to improve treatment and increase cure rates of childhood cancers. We, a charity for children with cancer, invite you to join us in our mission to deliver hope and support to underprivileged cancer stricken children and their families, and in helping children with cancer around the world.
Mission and Services
Although coping with a cancer diagnosis and managing the treatments is painful and difficult, it is important to remember that the majority of child cancer patients survive this devastating disease if diagnosed and treated early. A new study put out by the University of Colorado Denver examines the stages and survival rates of cancer. The results of this study indicate that people living in poor neighborhoods have a greater risk of dying from cancer than people with a higher socioeconomic status. In the poorest 25 countries in the world, an estimated 90% of children diagnosed with cancer die. The disparity in survival rates between rich and poor countries is greater for childhood cancers than for any other cancers. Although there has been remarkable progress in the fight against cancer, the incidence of cancer among children is increasing worldwide, particularly in third world countries where access to information and treatment for cancer control is limited or nonexistent. ISCC’s mission is to support children with cancer and make a difference in the lives of cancer-stricken children, adolescents, and their families by providing access to the highest quality care and service possible, regardless of their financial status. ISCC, a charity for children with cancer, is able to do this by raising funds through various vehicles, then granting these funds to hospitals around the world that specialize in treating childhood cancer, such as MAHAK and CHOC Hospital, and cancer research centers, such as St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, around the world.
