Compelling Evidence on Uninsured Cancer Patients


Press Release
Compelling Evidence on Uninsured Cancer Patients

The 126 cancer patients treated by The Metropolitan Community Clinic at Helliniko provide compelling evidence of the grim reality faced by the uninsured cancer sufferer. These patients were referred to Sotiria Hospital for chemotherapy. With two years of experience in treating cancer patients, the statistics gathered were presented at an oncology conference on 17 November in Athens.

Sixty percent of these patients came to MCCH in the third, fourth and even fifth month after the initial diagnosis. In all these cases, the tumours had grown or spread. In almost all of the cases, exams, including CT scans had to be done from the beginning even though in many cases, the cancer was quite advanced.

The disastrous policies coming from the Ministry of Health have resulted in what to amounts to the “murder” of ten of our patients, including mothers who have left orphaned children. These patients, if they had received treatment earlier, needn’t have died.

We need to shout out, with one united voice – human life is more than numbers and money.
