Shanice Brown works at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge and in 2018, she chose to lend her skills to support children in Myanmar when volunteering with World Child Cancer.
Shanice spoke about how a lack of access to basic tools not only prevented the team from working how they wanted to but also how it forced her to learn new techniques to cope and overcome the challenges she and the team faced.
Volunteers like Shanice are the backbone of the twinning partnerships World Child Cancer creates between hospitals in developed countries and those in the developing countries in which we work. By sharing knowledge from experienced professionals, we can enhance the quality of care provided to children with cancer around the world.
World Child Cancer is currently hosting an appeal to give children with cancer the Gift of Growing Up. All children, no matter where they are born, deserve equal access to the best possible treatment and care which is why Shanice chose to volunteer with World Child Cancer and you can make a difference too by donating today. Every gift you make between now and 30th June will be doubled by the UK Government meaning your support will go twice as far. By giving £20 you could cover the costs for a volunteer healthcare professional like Shanice to travel between hospitals in a local area to help train their peers.
