Cancer is on the rise in disadvantaged countries and something needs to be done to prevent it…and fast.
According to www.medicalnewstoday.com, nearly 75% of cancer patients in underprivileged countries result in fatalities, an estimated 29% more than those in established countries.
So what is being done about this surge? As the above site notes, experts in the health industry are encouraging the use of off-patent medications, as well as informing citizens and educating physicians about the disease.
Medical News Today notes that 56% of cancer cases in the world during 2008 were found in poorer countries. If this rate continues, this percentage may rise to 70% by the year 2030.
These are striking facts. So what can we do to help? Spread awareness and Road Scholar Transport is doing just that with our 10 Million Miles to a Cure Awareness Campaign. Road Scholar has vowed to travel 10 million miles in order to help spread awareness of the many diseases battling lives today.
How does it work? Simple, through Road Scholar’s moving billboards. Road Scholar has trailers dedicated to causes such as, but not limited to: Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation, American Breast Cancer Foundation, Children’s Tumor Foundation, Prostate Cancer Awareness, and the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network.
Can you help? Of course. Our customers play a large role in this campaign. We need your business to help keep the spreading awareness. Visit www.roadscholar.com/awareness to learn more about our campaign and to view our awareness trailers.
