We have also contributed to different organizations and charities and we are currently partnering with the Vincent Hosang Family Foundation (VHFF) in making this endeavor a reality.
Demand for cancer treatment in Jamaica is increasing. According to data from the Jamaica Information Service, based on an article in the West Indian Medical Journal, “the annual incidence of prostate cancer in Jamaica is currently 65.5 new cases for each 100,000 males in the population. Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer among Jamaican women, accounting for 18% of cancer related deaths each year.”Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among Jamaican women aged 15 to 24 years in Kingston and St. Andrew; prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men (Dr. Mike Mills, university (University of the West Indies, Mona) lecturer, physician and gastroenterologist).
Yearly, the hospital treats an average of 400 cases with the current machine. With the inclusion of the LINAC, it could potentially treat 1040. With a waiting list of 106 patients to get treatment, stretching up to November 2012, this could be averted with the inclusion of the Linear Acceleration Machines. Above all, the LINAC is ideal for treating some deep seated tumors that is unavoidably treated with a Cobalt unit.
