Dr Paul Wharin is a retired GP from the UK and has worked in Cameroon for several years. 1000 children are expected to develop cancer in Cameroon each year but many of them will never be able to access the treatment they require. Today, Dr Wharin has been speaking about the progress being made in Cameroon and how parent support programmes are enabling more families to afford the costs of travelling to hospital.
Just £100 could cover six months of transport costs to and from hospital for a child with cancer. Every 3 minutes a child with cancer dies in a developing country. You can Stop the Childhood Cancer Clock by giving the gift of growing up today.
