Greg Anderson, Founder & CEO of Cancer Recovery Foundation International, Responds to World Cancer Report 2014

The new World Cancer Report issued by the World Health Organization (WHO), recently predicted worldwide cancer rates to rise by 57 percent in the next two decades.  The report used its strongest language ever to highlight the problem including the dire prediction of “an imminent human disaster” if we do not act.WorldCancerReport

The report issued a sobering warning:  “We cannot treat our way out of the cancer problem. More commitment to prevention and early detection is desperately needed in order to complement improved treatments and address the alarming rise in cancer burden globally.”

The global burden of cancer is the single most important reason why the Cancer Recovery Foundation Group of charities, including Breast Cancer Charities of America and Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation maintain a major commitment to medical missions through their International Aid programs.

The organizations’ medical missions program distributes cancer treatment medicines, cancer diagnostic and treatment equipment as well as ancillary medical supplies to mission hospitals globally.  Recent recipients include cancer treatment centers in Guatemala, Honduras, Grenada, Kenya, Ghana, Liberia, DR Congo, Zambia, Zimbabwe, The Philippines and Viet Nam.

“We believe we are our brothers (and sisters) keepers,” said Greg Anderson.  “When we began our work, we clearly stated our mission was to help ALL people prevent and survive cancer.  Our International Aid program fulfills that mission mandate.”

The World Cancer Report said the growing cancer burden disproportionately impacts developing nations—the very countries that have the least resources to respond to the problem.  Approximately 60 percent of the world’s cancer cases and approximately 70 percent of the world’s cancer death occur in Africa, Asia, Central and South America.

“This is exactly why we are committed to helping in this way,” said Anderson.  More information on how The Breast Cancer Charities of America helps, visit their website.
