Enhance for a Chance

Pediatric cancer patients at the Maharagama Cancer Hospital do not have ideal lifestyles. Most of them come from poor socio-economic backgrounds, and their families struggle just to afford the bus fare to get to the hospital. If the bus fares are expensive, just think about how capable some of these families are to afford the constant treatment and medication their children need to get better. Cancer already makes these children’s futures bleak, and they need all the medication and care that they can get to fight it. However, these poor children will only have insufficient treatment regimens, and may even be subjected to death, if the medications that they need cannot be provided due to cost. The government does significant work in subsidizing a lot of medications that the children receive, but not all medications can be provided. This is where Revive to Survive has chosen to step in. Providing these lifesaving medications to the patients can enhance their chances of fighting cancer.

Revive to Survive has launched “Enhance for a Chance.” This bold mission will help to provide these life-saving drugs to all pediatric cancer patients at NCI. RtoS has been helping patients with this need for several years. We held a successful Gala Dinner Dance Fundraiser in 2013 and raised over $30,000 to provide Neupogen to patients at the NCI in Sri Lanka.

RtoS humbly requests that you be part of this mission in providing lifesaving medications to the pediatric cancer patients at NCI. Our goal is to raise $2,000/month to give to the Maharagama Cancer Hospital. These funds will be used to treat the pediatric patients with medications that are not readily funded by the government. Additional funds, if available, would be directed to provide these medications to the cancer units of the Anuradhapura (Northern Province of Sri Lanka) and Karapitiya (Southern Province of Sri Lanka) hospitals.

Your tax-deductible recurring donation of $10 per month or $120 per year will help us reach of goal of donating $2,000 per month to the NCI. We have estimated that with 200 donors per year, we will be able to achieve our monthly donation goal to the National Cancer Institute in Sri Lanka. Revive to Survive will receive monthly reports from the NCI, which will contain the drugs that our monthly donations were used on, and how many patients were treated. With this money, the pediatric cancer patients can be given the life-saving medications that they need, and possibly be given a brighter future.

Revive to Survive appreciates your donation to “Enhance for a Chance”.
