Upon Completion of their training, the trained physicians and the nurse will return to the Civil Service Hospital to start Bone Marrow Transplant Services.
During the Idaho Society of Clinical Oncology (ISCO) meeting in Boise Idaho on Nov 10th, BTF president Dr. Binay Shah gave a talk on the status of Hematology/Oncology outside the USA. Dr Shah also talked about various BTF projects to the meeting attendees.
Dr. Shah is a board member of ISCO. BTF partnered with ISCO during the Hematology conferences this year, both in Lewiston Idaho and Kathmandu Nepal.
BTF would like to thank ISCO for its continued support.
Cargill Realty, a Northern Idaho/Eastern Washington based real estate firm, has pledged to donate a portion of its revenue to support BTF projects. Paul Tutcher, owner and broker at the real estate firm says, “ In this troubled world its nice to be involved with a Non-Profit Organization whose goal is to help those in need. I am happy to pledge my support knowing that the donation is used as intended.” Paul traveled to Nepal last September to volunteer for the International Conference on Updates in Hematologic Malignancies.
