MPC HELPS THE CHILDREN'S CANCER CENTER OF LEBANON
Dear MPC Members,
The Metrolina Phoenician Club is setting out to fundraise on behalf of the Children's Cancer Center of Lebanon to insure the cost of an out of stock medication in critical need to be imported from abroad.
Each vial costs $2,239. Right now, 530 vials are needed to provide 11 hospitals in critical need in Lebanon who rely on the Children's Cancer Center to provide this medication to treat children with leukemia.
The cure rate for leukemia is 92%. It is unacceptable to lower this survivorship percentage because a medication was not available in a patient's country. It is unacceptable because this percentage is not just a number; this percentage is children with names, parents, siblings, and friends at school. It is unacceptable because your support for the medications is here and it is strong.
All donations made through the link below are tax deductible and letters will be provided to each donor at the end of the campaign.
For those individuals who have accounts in Lebanon, donations can be made directly to CCCL, with bank details located here, we just ask that you inform us so we can keep record of our impact.
