This week, the 11th patient sponsored by Road to Care began treatment in Kenya. She will receive her external beam radiotherapy at the Aga Khan University Hospital in Nairobi, her chemotherapy at Jalaram Medical Centre across the street, and her brachytherapy treatment upon return to Kampala at the Uganda Cancer Institute.
All three of these partners have agreed to provide their services free of charge.
Through this collaboration, we will be able to continue sending stage IB-IIB cervical cancer patients to Kenya until the new radiotherapy machine is operational in Uganda.
To house these patients, Road to Care has rented and stocked an apartment in Nairobi, housing four patients at a time. The cost of providing transportation, accommodations and food for each patient for the duration of their treatment is $900.
Every 5 weeks, we will send another group of 4 patients to Nairobi to receive curative treatment.
Please help us by making a donation. Only with your generous support can we continue this life-changing work.
