December the end of an eventful 2022 and an exciting new year 2023 to come. We end this year with thanking all our supporters, well wishers, donors and Trustees. The journey from 2009 till now we would not have come this far without your help. We have a lot to be thankful for, we would like to say we appreciate each and every one that has come along our journey to help shape our Hospital to what it has become. We thank our patients for being the focal point of our Hospital, believing in us to provide a first rate medical service for their medical needs and being our anchor and inspiration.
November is Mouth Cancer Awareness Month. Mouth cancer (also known as oral cancer) is one of the most common types of head and neck cancer. It can start in any part of the mouth. According to world health ranking Bangladesh ranked #4 in the world in 2020 with as many as 2.17% of the deaths relating to oral cancer. The figures are alarming, the situation in Bangladesh is dire. Since opening BB Cancer & General Hospital doors we have provided medical cancer services to 1620 people all across Bangladesh. By the Grace of The All Mighty this has been possible due to your kind donations and support. Your contributions have supported lifesaving treatments and provided a fighting chance for all those suffering. We thank each and every one of you for believing in us and being the backbone of the Hospital.
We celebrate Breast Cancer Awareness Month. Recognising the heroic women and men that have fought their battle fighting this deadly disease. Breast cancer has become so common amongst women, but men are also fighting this battle. There are over 50,000 women diagnosed with breast cancer each year and 400 men, 1 in 1000 men will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. Statistics are alarming and with the right detection and medical help this can be preventable.
This month we celebrate Childhood Cancer Awareness Month. Cancer claims the lives of more children than any other childhood diseases combined. BB Cancer & General Hospital have made it their mission to support children of all age groups in educational programmes and presentations about cancer and early detection. Our projects aim to inspire the youth and educate them on this deadly disease. It is vital for the young minds to register what cancer can do and the different forms that can affect a family. This is our way of giving back to the locals and the future leaders of the Hospital. It is essential to teach children about helping each other and teaching them the lessons of giving back to society.
August celebrates World Lung Cancer. We celebrate the fight for our survivors and the hero’s that lost their battle. Please remember all those suffering from this deadly disease and be their voice.

Welcome to our monthly newsletter and follow our journey to help thousands of underprivileged Bangladeshis receive free treatment where finance is not the first thing on our patients mind rather than when they will be cancer free.
BB Cancer and General Hospital first opened their doors in February 2015 and since our first medical consultation we can proudly say we have provided safe and accessible medical treatment to thousands. Servicing those that are unable to afford life saving treatment and medication. Our Hospital has gone directly to the doors of our patients ensuring each patient young or old are seen to by our fantastic medical team through the funding of our Medical Camps. We are extremely grateful for each door that has opened since 2015, weather its through our Life Members paying a £1000 each or through commitment to becoming a Trustee/Sponsor and General Donor. Each penny donated has helped us build a fully functioning cancer and general unit and we are continually looking to invest in state of the art machinery to help us in our fight to combat cancer. This would not be possible without the support of the general public believing in our vision and ethos to make Bangladesh cancer free. All we can say is thank you from us and our patients whom you helped along their journey.

Ramadan Mubarak to you and your family from our family at BB Cancer & General Hospital.
During the month of Ramadan it is vital for Muslims to observe fast during the hours of daylight for one whole month, also to understand the hunger of the poor all around the world. A sense of reminder and reflection of the less fortunate. It is a time for family, to make time to volunteer, pay your zakat and donate towards the dire.
