Donate Screeningul Salveaza Vieti
Caravana cu Medici launches the first Romanian pilot project for screening colorectal cancer and. RUF aims to raise $5,000 (half of it on Facebook) to support their efforts.
Screening is the main method for fighting against the disease. Unfortunately, in Romania, there is no national strategy for colorectal cancer prevention and no screening program (like there is for cervical cancer).
The money raised will help Caravana cu Medici test approximately 450 asymptomatic people with ages between 45-75. Patients who test positive will be later guided for further investigations at the closest gastroenterology department, where, after a colonoscopy, a potential malign lesion can be confirmed or excluded.
