In February 2012, Rooms That Rock 4 Chemo partnered with National League Against Cancer in El Salvador to transform the The Cancer Institute of El Salvador facility. The transformation included: A 7-bed community chemotherapy room, an Infusion Room, Doctors and Staff offices, Board Room and Nurse’s Station plus hallways and bathrooms.
The Cancer Institute has been running ever since 1967 thanks to the Board of Directors of the National League Against Cancer in El Salvador and Dr. Narciso Diaz Bazan, Founder of the Cancer Institute. During these years, they have been treating patient with radiation and brachytherapy to patients who cannot afford health insurance in El Salvador. The Institute is located in San Salvador (3ra Calle Poniente), yet they receive sick patients that come from very far and get their needed treatments. The Cancer Institute worked directly with several non-profits, including National League Against Cancer in El Salvador and Basic Health International.
