Lupita is the lead nurse at Hospital del Nino DIF in Pachuca, central Mexico. She has over a decade of paediatric nursing experience and her commitment to her profession allows her to build relationships with her patients.
Despite her vast experience working as a paediatric oncology nurse, sharing the news of their child’s cancer diagnosis to parents is always difficult.
Late diagnosis due to financial constraints or a lack of awareness of childhood cancer are barriers thousands of children encounter in developing countries. However, these are barriers that we can overcome by working collaboratively and with support from our donors. With childhood cancer survival rates as high as 80% in the developed world, we can even the odds for those in developing countries.
World Child Cancer aims to give more children a faster route to diagnosis and treatment by forming twinning partnerships with hospitals in developing countries with those in developed countries to improve early diagnosis. You can give the gift of growing up to a child with cancer by donating today. Giving £100 could cover the cost of accurate diagnosis for five children with cancer, increasing their chances of survival.
