BECAUSE Cancer diseases have started to become more common among children. Every year more than a million children in the world and approximately 1200 children in Turkey are under the risk of being afflicted by leukemia. On the other hand, WHO warns us: There will be a 60% increase in cancer diseases by 2020.
BECAUSE During the treatment of leukemia hygiene, nutrition and staying in touch with life are equally important as medication. Children should not conceive of hospitals as a place where they will be treated for approximately three years, but as an entertaining playschool and a warm home.
BECAUSE At birth a child cannot choose between poverty or wealth and between being healthy or ill. Nor can he/she choose the place to be treated. Whereas according to the Children’s Rights Agreement, every child should have the right to live and be treated under equal circumstances and state patronage.
BECAUSE The treatment of leukemia is extremely expensive. None of the families can afford the treatment expenses that add up to hundreds of thousands of YTL. Therefore, non profit foundation hospitals which provide complimentary treatment are needed.
BECAUSE Families who come to big cities such as Istanbul and Ankara for their child’s treatment, need modern centers where they can find a bed and a smiling face, rather than having to cope with city traffic
