Radiotherapy – Fighting Cancer PSA

Video Transcript:
“I’m so sorry to tell you, you have cancer”. “Radiotherapy can be you cure but we may have caught it too late”. “We have no cancer treatment in our country” A cancer diagnosis in a poor country can spell a death sentence. Health systems are overburdened without the screening and treatment that could save millions of lives. Many countries lack an even single radiotherapy machine, yet cancer is becoming an epidemic, killing more people worldwide than AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria combined. Two-year-old Given got his treatment late, but just in time. This radiotherapy machine provided by the IAEAE saveed his life, but not his eyes. For this young mother in Haiti, hope is all she has. With no treatment in the country to wipe out her cancer, her doctor resorts to surgery. Find out how you can help the IAEA and its partners build the cancer care systems these people deserve.
