Don recently trekked with our RadHope team to the base camp of Mt. Everest. He climbed as one of our cancer survivors, overcoming a thyroid cancer. He also climbed in honor of someone very special to him. See the video of Don, by Rasmus Rasmusen
RadHope climbers trekked to the base camp of Mt. Everest, the highest mountain in the world. Our climbers honor those who have battled cancer and for some, this is deeply personally. Lacey climbed in honor of her father and felt a unique bond with her dad on this trip. See video by Rasmus Preston Rasmusen.
Molly, an inspiring breast cancer survivor, climbed to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro on our annual RadHope Tanzania expedition. See what Molly learned on her journey through cancer treatments and how that helped her make it to the top of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Video by Rasmus Rasmusen.
Radiating Hope was invited, by the IAEA, (international atomic energy agency), to participate as a panelist for the World Cancer Leader's Summit, which is an annual high-level policy meeting dedicated to further global cancer control. The meeting brings together all of the key decision makers related to cancer care globally.
The IAEA, the group that oversees radiation globally, has asked that we be on one of the key panels and give an overview of our nonprofit. This was an honor and duty we were able to fulfill. Dr. Shilpen Patel from the Radiating Hope board of directors attended this meeting as our representative. The meeting was a great success!
Radiating Hope Society members, David Gaffney, Brandon Fisher and Tom Ladd, participated with world leaders in Radiation Oncology at the Cervical Cancer Research Network (CCRN) conference in Thailand. The CCRN (which Dr. Gaffney founded) promotes clinical trials in cervical cancer. These trials are setup to save thousands and thousands of lives. In attendance were world leaders from Thailand, USA, Taiwan, Japan, China, Brazil, Philippines, VietNam, Burma, India, etc. It was inspiring and humbling to see the efforts of these doctors in the fight against cervical cancer.
