Our aim is to 'give hope' for children fighting cancer, helping to bring as much normality and happiness as possible to their childhood

Cancer is a leading cause of death for children and adolescents around the world and approximately 50-200 children in every million, aged 0 to 19 years old are diagnosed with cancer each year. In high-income countries more than 80% of children with cancer are cured, but in many low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) only about 20% are cured. (World Health Organization, 28 September 2018 )

A comprehensive study, published in 2018, examined childhood cancer incidence and survival rates in Thailand.
Cancer cases diagnosed in children ages 0‐19 years from 1990 to 2011. The Age‐standardized incidence rates (ASRs) of all childhood cancers during the study period increased from 91.0 per million person‐years in 1990–2000 to 106.2 per million person‐years in 2001–2011.
Incidence of all childhood cancers increased significantly, over 17%.
In other words, an estimated 1.600 children are diagnosed with cancer every year in Thailand!

The top three cancer groups were leukemias, brain tumors, and lymphomas.
The 5‐year survival for all childhood cancers significantly improved from 39.4% in 1990–2000 to 47.2% in 2001–2011.

Members of our Rotary Club have a heart to help and want to make a difference for Children living with cancer in our local community. Till today date we have already contributed:

  • A Hematocrit Centrifuge to enable faster blood analysis.
  • Classroom equipment to enable children to continue with education even during lengthy stays.
  • Toys and books to help keep them entertained and stimulated during such a difficult time. 
  • Hospital beds.
  • An ECG monitor.
  • An emergency/crash cart
  • Christmas gifts every year since 2015 for the children staying at the hospital during the end of the year period.
