PCRF Continues Developing Cancer Care in Gaza
PCRF Continues Developing Cancer Care in Gaza

This week volunteer Medical Oncologist/Hematologist Dr. Rami Abumasmah, from the Henry Ford Healthcare Sustem in Detroit, is in Gaza providing training for local staff and suppprt for patient care. Cancer is one of the main killer of Gazans and is even more difficult due to the shortage of drugs, permits for treatment abroad and the lack of radiation therapy in Gaza. Today he gave a scientific lecture on cancer treatment and survivorship for local doctors.  This is his second mission with PCRF.  In February 2019 PCRF opened Dr. Musa and Suhaila Nasir Pediatric Cancer Department in Gaza, which has treated hundreds of children there.  We continue to provide chemotherapy drugs and train abroad for doctors as well.
