Who would like to save a child’s life while racing in the Kilimanjaro Marathon 2024?
- Did you know that given the right treatment childhood cancer is very curable – 85% of kids with cancer in resource rich settings are fully cured. Tumaini La Maisha has been working across Tanzania for 12 years supporting hospitals (including KCMC), providing chemotherapy, medical staff and services free of charge for all children in need.
- Tanzania’s children’s cancer care story began with the treatment of just over 100 children in 2005, when survival rates barely reached 10%. Fast forward to 2022, TLM supports almost 1,000 new patients with survival rates reaching to over 50%. Learn more about our efforts on our website www.wearetlm.org
- While these achievements are indeed noteworthy, there’s still so much ground to cover on our path to reach every child in need and continue to close the cure gap. There are so many children who tragically die before they reach the care they need and deserve.
- TLM is committed to reaching every single child – but we need your support to do this – small donations from many donors can make a massive impact to this urgent need – can you help us spread childhood cancer cures across Tanzania?
