Refurbished Linear Accelerator Helping Cancer Patients in Venezuela
Radiation oncology facilities in the United States should think carefully about what happens to their used equipment. Much of this equipment is being destroyed and scrapped unnecessarily, and it’s imperative that it not go to waste. Used linear accelerators are in high demand in developing markets, and what we do in the United States has consequences around the world.
This newly installed, refurbished linear accelerator system will help thousands of needy cancer patients in a country that is plagued with crisis. Without it, many cancer patients would go without desperately needed treatments.
We extend our congratulations to the Gurve Group for supporting cancer care in Venezuela, and we thank our United States partners that graciously provide this life-saving equipment.
