This Foundation was created from the vision of Eugène Gasana Jr., whose life was touched by cancer. Out of this personal experience, he expressed a wish for all children to have access to the same benefit of quality cancer care as he was given in the United States. The initial activities of the Foundation will be conducted in Ghana and a sustainable model will be created that will later be recapitulated in other developing nations.

The focus of the Foundation is a global humanitarian initiative designed to provide or enhance the opportunity for a pediatric cancer cure for children in developing nations. Through access to essential medical expertise, medicines and supplies, resources and infrastructure support, the Eugène Gasana Jr. Foundation will provide capacity building in partnership with pediatric cancer programs in the global healthcare community.

No child should be denied the opportunity for cure of their cancer if we have it within our capacity to cure their cancer simply by providing the resources and leveraging our collective voice.


The Eugène Gasana Jr. Foundation has the following objectives.

1. To provide access to a comprehensive and sustainable supply of chemotherapeutic and supportive care medications critical to the delivery of curative therapy.
2. To support nutritional programs and empowerment initiatives to ensure the health and well-being of children undergoing cancer treatment.
3. To provide resources to advance infection control policies and procedures in compliance with international regulatory guidelines to minimize the risk of infection.
4. To provide infrastructure support for the development of state-of-the art medical facilities to enhance the diagnostic capability and the treatment of children with cancer.
5. To provide access to medical expertise for the training of medical professionals regarding the care of children with cancer and their treatment.
6. To increase the awareness of pediatric cancer in the global community.
7. To promote global equity and honor the dignity of children with cancer as well as other diseases worldwide.

The sole and fundamental purpose of the Eugène Gasana Jr. Foundation is to help provide the opportunity for a cure for all children with cancer in developing nations. Through the leveraging of alliances with network partners and capacity building, it is believed that this goal will be accomplished.
