Tip of the day💡: Sometimes, real superheroes live in the hearts of small children fighting big battles!! 💪🏻🦸🏻 ...

Our deepest condolences for the big loss of Persians around the world.
He was 80, and had battled kidney cancer for more than a decade.
It is with a heavy heart that we learned of the passing of Maestro Mohammad Reza Shajarian. We mourn the loss of a giant of Iranian music and a tireless champion of the dignity of human beings, and the indispensable role of art in achieving this dignity. We know this loss is felt deeply in Iran, amongst the Iranian and indeed by all lovers of music.
He was an artist for the ages.

Doctor! I enjoyed eating Barbari (Traditional Iranian bread)
We have been told a nice memory by one of MAHAK's parents and we would like to share it with you:
"My son had been hospitalized at Bone Marrow Transplantation Ward for a while and his doctor had prescribed a special diet for him. One day the doctor allowed him to eat #Barbari (traditional Iranian bread). On the following morning, my husband bought a piece of Barbari for our son. My son said:" Mom! Please give some bread to the staff and tell them to give it to Pouria. He hadn't seen Pouria and had just heard his voice from the neighboring room. When the doctor came for the morning visit, he said:' Son! You are very kind and generous. Pouria told me he hadn't eaten Barbari for more than a month.' "

With your support and cooperation, we look forward to more joyful farewells to cancer-stricken children and wish for a day when all patient children would be able to spend their childhood recording happy and joyful days with their own cameras.

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. In addition, the charity is responsible for collection of donations and humanitarian assistance from people, institutions and organizations. 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.
