One of the most critical needs of FANC patients is access to special tests, which are essential for their follow-up and monitoring. In general, these tests are not performed in public hospitals and are essential for diagnosing and treating patients.
Over 60% of the patients FANCC attends require these exams. Due to their high costs, the Foundation prioritizes the case's urgency when deciding which patients will receive tests. The Foundation has also established quotas for specific requests for special tests. CT scans are limited to 10-12 per month, while MRIs and Gammagrams are limited to 1 monthly.
To provide special tests to children, girls, and adolescents with cancer who are from families with limited resources.
- Beneficiaries and Project Scope:
