A key feature to our therapy at the Oasis of Hope is that we insure that our patients have a reasonable understanding of therationale behind their therapies. Every week, Oasis of Hope patients are encouraged to attend lectures, nutritional classes, and question & answer sessions.

Companions can also askstaff physicians and medical scientists any questions they might have about their disease or their therapy.

Esperanza De Vida (Hope Of Life)
BCARI provides medical supplies, medical equipment and humanitarian aid to be used by those in need in hospitals and clinics in Guatemala that treat cancer and other degenerative diseases. The hospitals and clinics provide much needed medical care to many of the needy and disadvantaged people of their areas; charging only the minimum amount, or in most cases nothing, for fees needed to provide the medical care. The regions they serve are some of the over twenty targeted areas by the World Health Organization to combat various degenerative diseases. Some diseases are spreading at epidemic rates. The lack of properly equipped medical facilities and medical supplies further contributes to the ongoing challenge of saving lives. Esperanza De Vida distributes medical supplies to 5 hospitals in the Zacapa Region that treat approximately 60,000 diabetics, 23,000 cancer patients and 25,000 children yearly. www.hopeoflifeintl.org
