We are grateful to Derek Ferreira Elementary Counselor International Community School of Addis Ababa and every single person and organization that showed the courage to step up and give of themselves. We are especially thankful to our supporters, without whom we would not be able to support cancer patients and their families; to our volunteers with their relentless energy and selfless giving; to our staff and representatives who carry our name with dignity and pride; and to our survivors and caregivers for showing us the way.

Cancer is not a battle that one can fight and win in isolation and we look forward to the professional, moral and material support of willing individuals and organizations like yours in order to make a difference!
