OLÁ BRASIL!

IT’S A GO! THE NYDG FOUNDATION, IN PARTNERSHIP WITH HOSPITAL DE AMOR DE BARRETOS LOCATED IN THE STATE OF SÃO PAULO, AND THE BRAZILIAN DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION OF SÃO PAULO, WILL LAUNCH SHADE UP! BRAZIL, ITS SIGNATURE SKIN CANCER PREVENTION PROGRAM FOR KIDS TO STAY ACTIVE AND HEALTHY UNDER THE SUN.

THE CONTEST-THE FIRST STEP FOR SKIN CANCER AWARENESS

In 2018, Hospital De Amor launched its 6th Annual São Paulo writing contest.  The theme of the contest was, “Skin Cancer: A look at your skin can change your life.”  379 schools participated with the active support of 683 teachers.

Aimed at all students in grade 9 across the state of São Paulo, the objective of the contest was to spread knowledge, popularize science, stimulate young people to stay active and healthy outdoors, and generate practical sun safe solutions that benefit all communities across the state of São Paulo. According to data collected from the INCA (National Cancer Institute of Brazil), of the 600 000 cases of cancer diagnosed per year in Brazil, 200,000 are skin cancers. The annual cost of treating skin cancer is estimated at over 1 billion USD.

DID YOU KNOW?

Hospital de Amor started as a small clinic for cancer treatment in a small Brazilian town called Barretos in 1962. 
The clinic was called São Judas. Did you know that St Jude Children’s Hospital in the USA was also established in 1962?

Today, São Judas has grown into Hospital de Amor. It receives 170,000 patients per year (2017) from more than 2,500 cities across Brazil, which means almost fifty percent of cities in the country.

WHAT IS SO SPECIAL ABOUT HOSPITAL DE AMOR?

Like St. Jude’s in the USA, patients do not pay for any treatment. 100% free! The hospital is fully operational by donations. All doctors work full time to avoid setting-up private practices and dedicating 100 percent of their time to the hospital. 
Doctors cannot receive money from patients.
