About Global HOPE

Children with cancer in sub-Saharan Africa face a devastating prognosis. Each year, over 100,000 children in Africa develop cancer and 90% of these children die. In addition, blood diseases such as sickle cell disease (SCD) are most common in Africa; about 600,000 babies are born with SCD in Africa every year, comprising 80% of the world burden of SCD. However, In the United States, 15,000 children develop cancer each year and are met with an 80% cure rate.
