Cause ‘Good Works’ Story – featuring Israel Children’s Cancer Foundation

February 3, 2016

The Israel Children’s Cancer Foundation is on the forefront of the fight against cancer.  Cancer is the number one killer of children in Israel; 1 in every 330 children under the age of 20 develops some form of cancer.  “Although Israel is technologically advanced in many areas, the delivery of cancer care … has not kept pace with the country’s progress. There is a compelling need for providing quality medical care in Israel to children…who are afflicted with the dreaded disease of cancer” (ICCF).

Well-to-do patients often go overseas to seek treatment for cancer, however for those who cannot afford the travel or the treatments, options are limited.  ICCF offers “assistance to every child in the State of Israel, regardless of race, creed, or national origin.  The Israel Children’s Cancer Foundation helps fund six major hospitals and medical centers in Israel specifically for the treatment of childhood cancers” (ICCF).

“I would like to thank…ICCF again for your generous and constant support…The ICCF now plays a central role in the Pediatric Oncology effort in Israel, not only in financial support but also in education and advocacy… We hope to maintain this partnership for many years to come.”

-Dr. Michael Weintraub,
Director of Pediatric Hematology-Oncology, Hadassah University Hospital, Jerusalem.
