According to official statistics, cancer is the third cause of death in Iran. The rate of death by cancer is increasing with about 70000 cancer patients having been recently diagnosed; of course these numbers will be added to the official statistics. Considering the above-mentioned facts, cancer will soon become the second leading cause of death in the country in the coming years.
One type of treatment for some cancer patients is Bone Marrow Transplantation (BMT). Though BMT is intended to help patients, it occasionally suppresses the immune system which in turn will make patients susceptible to different kinds of infection, occasionally causing death. With the purpose of providing a proper place for patients to pass their convalescence period, especially for those patients coming from other cities who cannot afford expensive overnight stays, Mahyar Charity will construct a properly equipped Recuperation center.
