Every dollar counts!
$1 per day might not seem like a significant amount, every dollar truly helps when fighting cancer and providing medical care to children in need. The donations also go toward supporting the families dealing with the obstacles that come with obtaining medical care.
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
The cost of treating one child for cancer each year is approximately $2,000. This total consists of several factors, such as medication that typically costs $15 a month. Scans can cost about $200, while radiation treatments can cost three times as much per visit. MAHAK, with its slogan of “Help us and let us help you.” relies on using the latest technology to provide the most effective care in a loving environment. No family is ever charged for medical care and treatment, or for transportation, meals, or housing.
HOW DO I DONATE?
After choosing to give to ISCC-Charity, and in turn the MAHAK organization, you can pledge to give $1 per day or become a monthly sponsor to give each month. Donating to ISCC-Charity is a meaningful way to fulfill personal philanthropy or teach your entire family about giving. The organization also appreciates and encourages donations and sponsorships made in honor or memory of a loved one.
Secure donations can be made online, and the website also features a printable donation form. Donors can also mail monetary gifts to the charity’s Irvine office . All of the necessary information can be found online at www.iscc-charity.org. ...

Eyes of the heart; A better way to see: “The story began the day we were told that Reza cannot see anymore. He just turned seven. It was the early days of school. I assumed that the flame in him for learning, playing and observing suddenly streaked off.
One of these days when he was so tired and nervous due to chemotherapy, I went to the playroom to find something for him to play. The psychologist in the room gave me Legos. I had doubt to take it or not. anyway, Reza started to play. Meanwhile, looking at him playing with the Legos I thought about the days after his diagnosis that I was full of stress and completely desperate to get along with him. With all these thoughts with such fear of tomorrow I slept.
The day after, with children’s sounds coming from the corridor laughing and playing, I woke up and believe me, what I saw was honestly fantastic. Reza made a house with every facility you can imagine. The rooms were separated, the stairs, windows, doors, everything. You cannot believe, even the kitchen had oven and fridge.
Since then I knew very well what makes Reza entertained and reduces his tension and stress. He spent hours and hours in his room to make new things. Once the doctor came to his room for a normal check-up, he saw a fun city at Reza’s room and said: ”Good for you, your mom is very talented.” We both laughed and I told the doctor that Reza himself had made it. The wonder in his eyes was the same as mine when I saw his first Lego construction.
Now a days, Reza is going to the school for the children visually impaired. What made me worry about my son few years ago makes me proud of him now. Reza can make different shapes with Legos only by touching them. He had never seen a sewing machine before but after touching it, he made a running one. It is four years that Reza is #cancer free and nothing could have stopped him from learning new things. I believe in him and I know that with skills he has and the journey he has passed; he will be one of the most successful people in the society. I hope that all the children with cancer will be remitted soon and there will be no children in pain anymore.” Reza’s Mother ...
MAHAK’s Son has Survived Cancer:
Amir Mohammad, MAHAK’s naughty boy, has fought cancer since birth time. The little boy of the great family of MAHAK has a manly smile on the face and likes to be a soldier and then a colonel to arrest all the thieves. He knows the treatment process very well because he has passed the hard stages of treatment in childhood to regain health.
Today more than 20,000 children are under treatment and support of MAHAK. The presence of the 7600 cancer-survivors makes the ever-growing family of MAHAK more confident about the survival of cancer-stricken children. We rely on your heartwarming support and we believe with your care and patronage we can one day celebrate the eradication of pediatric cancer. ...
Having his camera in his hands, Kian, one of MAHAK’s little heroes who has survived cancer, comes to MAHAK for his regular checkups and tries to record the smiles on our faces while telling him goodbye. Even though we miss Kian every time, we hope we never see him again at the hospital.
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. ...
The Colorful Childhood World and Bright Wishes.
Childhood is an interesting and wonderful world; a world full of simple happiness, memorable friendships, transient angers and achievable big and small wishes.
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 we believe that no child suffering from cancer should be left untreated.
ISCC invites you to join us to deliver hope and support to underprivileged cancer stricken children and their families.

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.
