“Are We Our Brothers’ (and Sisters’) Keepers?”
The Bible's story of Cain and Abel drives an important part of the mission of Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation. After Cain had murdered his brother Abel, God asked him where his brother was. Cain answered, “I know not; am I my brother's keeper?”
Cain's words have come to symbolize people's unwillingness to accept responsibility for the welfare of their fellows — their “brothers” in the extended sense of the term. The Judeo-Christian tradition is that people do have this responsibility.
Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation operates an extensive international aid program which provides treatment medications and medical supplies to clinics and doctors treating cancer patients in developing and impoverished countries. We also provide medicine and supplies to aid medical professionals in the treatment and prevention of the side effects of cancer including lymphedema and treatment-related infections.
Children’s Cancer Recovery Foundation has partnered with mission hospitals, medical clinics and healthcare providers in Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, Kenya, the Philippines and Viet Nam. Without this important program, literally thousands of cancer patients would simply not be able to receive the medical attention that is required for survival. Indeed, we are proud to do our part in being our brothers’—and sisters’—keeper.
