A Letter from One of MAHAK Children to his Pain
The text you read below is Amirhossein's letter to his disease. Amirhossein is MAHAK's 13-year-old son.
You have chosen a wrong person to come to. You should leave now so that I can live my lovely life. You can't defeat me. On the contrary it is me who can defeat you and throw you to the side of the ring and as soon as you leave I will never let a minute of life be wasted.
I will recover so perfectly that all the doctors will become surprised. I will be able to run, jump and overtake everyone.
I am a successful football player. Many years have passed and I have become a successful person; I smile at you and you can't do anything.
Now you know about your future, so leave me as soon as possible or I will laugh at you instead of smiling."
🔸There are other cancer-stricken children like Amirhossein at MAHAK who spend hard treatment days with the hope for the future and believe that they can be heroes in defeating their disease. Your constant support and contributions lead to the championship of MAHAK children. We appreciate all our supporters and wish health and wellbeing for all our children. ...

Arasb Ahmadian, the CEO of MAHAK Charity has been nominated as the finalist for the CEO Award by Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) along with two other executives from Australia and Nigeria.
UICC with membership of over 1100 organizations in 170 countries strives to unite and support the cancer community to reduce the global cancer burden, promote greater equity, and to ensure cancer control continues to be a priority in the world health and development agenda. Since 2016, MAHAK as a full member of UICC has put its efforts on promoting this union’s messages and goals in national and regional levels as well as raising awareness in the society about cancer and cancer control.
The CEO award is granted by UICC every two years during the World Cancer Congress (WCC) in recognition of outstanding contributions of a CEO in the field of cancer control. Due to the current pandemic hit, the WCC is called off but the winner will be announced on November 24 during one of the virtual dialogues of UICC.
The finalists were selected according to several factors including candidate’s leadership and concrete positive impact on their organizations, demonstration of resilience and drive in managing the organization, and promoting collaborative spirit in running the organization or development of original strategies.
Undoubtedly, receiving this award from UICC, as a credible organization in the field of cancer control, would be an honor for MAHAK’s ever-expanding family. However, the realization of cancer control around the globe is more valuable since this is the goal of UICC and its member organizations are mobilized for this. MAHAK as the combined pediatric cancer treatment and supportive care center with 29 years of experience wishes the other two candidates lots of success and hopes such kinds of recognitions and awards raise public awareness towards this disease and the expanded challenges service providers are facing in providing quality care in support of cancer patients.

In Observance of World Kindness Day
Kindness is like taking care of a flower! You water your flower; put it in exposure of sunlight, change its soil and you get overjoyed by its being lush…
But once it withers, you get worried and look for a remedy, you ask for help and do whatever you can to have it as fresh and green as it was.
Kindness is treating people with love and caring about their concerns without expecting any compensation.
Kindness is what you do as members of the ever expanding family of MAHAK for cancer-stricken children by contributing so much love, emotion and prayers.
We appreciate your presence.
Happy World Kindness Day ...
Join the Cause: Millions of Kids Need Our Help
MAHAK, since inception in 1991 and as a result of over two decades of service has fulfilled a great part of its mission which is to provide comprehensive support for children with cancer, thus reducing child mortality rates and empowering the families of children who suffer from cancer.
Mahak provides supportive, psycho-social and welfare services to the deprived children and their families. Support services include social work, psychology and welfare services.

Fundraising activities include donation boxes, membership schemes, advertising and special projects as well as Public and International Relations that keep rapport with volunteers, donors at national and international level.
This highly specialized pediatric hospital offers the latest methods and technology in detecting and treating childhood cancer such as Leukemia, Brain tumors, Bone tumors, etc.
Mahak’s team of physicians, highly skilled advanced practice nurses with expertise in all aspects of care for children with cancer, psychologists, and social workers are collaborating coherently for early detection and treatment of this catastrophic disease.
Therefore, efforts over the last 24 years have resulted in remarkable increase in cure rate of patients with pediatric cancer.
They also bring together the best minds in pediatric research to set the most effective standards and find out the latest methods of prevention and treatment.Numbers of nationally well-known physicians have gathered to improve the health and safety of children by conducting joint workshops, projects, conferences at national and international level in the field of pediatric cancer.
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.
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.
