Delivering proven cancer treatment to children of developing nations is a monumental mission, and one that only can be accomplished by creating a strong collaboration of partners with the same vision. Joining Keira Grace Foundation in the quest to share the cure is a consortium of foundations, medical facilities, medical teams and support organizations. Without their collaboration and help, children with cancer in developing countries would continue to receive substandard treatment. Together, we can raise the quality of care to children with cancer in developing countries and increase the survival rates by more than 400 percent.
To all of our partners, on behalf of the children we serve, thank you for sharing the cure.
