Caravana cu Medici
Caravana cu Medici launched the first Romanian pilot project for screening colorectal cancer and is aiming to raise 5000 USD to support their efforts. The screening is considered 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.
