It Takes a Village to Save a Child

Fortunately, we have the tools to help most children survive. The challenge is making sure they are accessible by every family that needs them. In the UK, eight in every 10 children will live a life beyond cancer. In Ghana, that number is less than three.

Diagnosis. Referral. Treatment. Family Support. Every piece of the puzzle matters. Because when it comes to giving children with cancer a happy, healthy future – collaboration is the key.

Cancer. Nothing can prepare you for the shock of hearing that word. Especially when it’s for a child. In that moment, nothing else matters. Only life, and what it will take to save it.

It takes a village to save a child.

To improve survival rates for children with cancer in Ghana, we must come together to improve each and every part of their care. This means:
  • Raising awareness around early warning signs and symptoms
  • Working with community and health professionals to improve the route into care – and making sure that the right people, systems and processes are in place when they get there.
  • Supporting the family as a whole. To bring cancer care closer to home and offer packages of financial, nutritional and social support that give every child and every family the chance to live a life free from cancer.
