Continue to provide cancer chemotherapy for children with cancer in New Delhi, India who were otherwise sent home to die. Without GCF’s support to provide treatment, the children suffering from life threatening cancer would otherwise be turned away and sent home to die without proper care. With your help this year GCF was able to increase the number of children who received life-saving treatment. This program is done in collaboration with CPAA (Cancer patient aid association), New Delhi, India
