2. Esperanza De Vida (Hope Of Life)
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.

Breast Cancer Research and Assistance Fund provides grants to advance research and patient care, helping Oasis of Hope patients achieve cancer survival rates that are higher than the national average. BCRAF supports Oasis of Hope in treating breast cancer through traditional therapies, clinically proven alternative treatments, and holistic methods designed to promote wellness in all areas of the patients life.
