Dear Friends,
 
There are few causes in our world more deserving and more urgent than the fight against cancer. Cancer has touched us all in one way or another, and knows no boundaries.
 
Thankfully, cancer patients in our region now have access to the most advanced cancer care at the King Hussein Cancer Center (KHCC), the only comprehensive cancer center in the Middle East for both adult and pediatric patients and the first center in the developing world to be internationally accredited as a disease-specific cancer center.
 
In the space of 18 short years, KHCC’s highly-qualified staff has expanded from just 2 to more than 330 oncologists and consultants, and our database has grown from a mere 14 patients to over 22,000! We are also immensely proud to have celebrated our 2000th pediatric cancer survivor.
 
At KHCC, it is our conviction that no one should ever be deprived of a real chance for a cure. To meet this life-saving goal, a brand new, state-of-the-art expansion to KHCC has opened its doors. This new facility will absorb up to 7000 new cancer patients each year and offer the most advanced treatment services, including performing 300 bone marrow transplants annually.
 
I am counting on you to join us in the fight against cancer, and to give hope for a cure to the tens of thousands of cancer patients who need us, depend on us and put their trust in us.
 
With my warmest regards,
