Campaign successfully funded on: 11 Dec,2013
On November 28th 2013, a group of 8 Climb For Cancer Volunteers will be attempting to summit Mt Kilimanjaro to raise funds and awareness for a UAE based cancer patient called Shahad, referred by Friends Of Cancer Patients.
Shahad Hussam is a 9-year old girl suffering from a brain tumor and getting radiation and chemotherapy treatment in the Tawam Hospital (Abu Dhabi). Her only hope of cure would be to have financial support to have a brain surgery at the Meo Clinics in Germany.
The estimated cost of her treatment is AED 300,000 to cover medical charges, 19 days accommodation, meals, interpretation of surgery and Brain Surgery.
