International Society for Children with Cancer (ISCC) is the brainchild of two special humanitarian mothers, Mrs. Fereshteh Tavakoli and Mrs. Saideh Ghods. Mrs. Ghods founded a non-profit, non-governmental organization (NGO) in Iran named MAHAK after personally enduring the pain, suffering and difficulties of her two year old child, Kiana’s diagnosis with cancer. So far MAHAK has been able to help over 20,000 indigent children suffering from cancer.

After witnessing the success of MAHAK in helping those in need, Mrs. Ghods with the help of Mrs. Tavakoli who was involved in fundraising, public relations and volunteer management at MAHAK for 23 years pledged to provide financial support to children suffering from cancer and their families worldwide. Thus in 2004 they co-founded ISCC in California.

ISCC’s mission is to provide financial support to children suffering from cancer and their families worldwide.

To date ISCC has helped seventeen NGOs working with cancer stricken children in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Cambodia, Colombia, Egypt, Honduras, Iran (OFAC License), Kenya, Lebanon, Turkey and the United States. The goal of the organization is to both expand the number of countries helped and increase monthly and annual members so that the children can count on a steady flow of financial support.

ISCC’s vision is to globally help reduce the mortality rate of impoverished children suffering from cancer, particularly in developing countries, through financial assistance.
