March 21, 2023
March 25 Event Benefits the Center for Oncology in Pediatrics
TIJUANA, Mexico – March 21, 2023 – Oasis of Hope Hospital – with its effective and revolutionary approach to all facets of cancer – is taking its fight against the disease on the road by sponsoring the Pedaleando Baja Bike Race benefiting the Castro-Limon Foundation, which is the funding source for the Center for Oncology in Pediatrics.
Oasis of Hopes’ Director, President and Chairman Dr. Francisco Conteras, along with 10 others from the hospital, will personally cycle the beautiful 60 km course from Rosarito to Valle de Guadalupe in Mexico.
“I’m honored to be representing Oasis of Hope Hospital at the upcoming cycling event benefiting the Castro-Limon Foundation to combat childhood cancer in Mexico, along with 10 other members from our team,” Dr. Contreras said. “Oasis of Hope is proud to sponsor such an event, and we pray that it will have a lasting impact for years to come.”
Marking its 14th year, Pedaleando has drawn 30,000 cyclists, the largest group of riders of any cause-driven race in the country, and it is the only cycling event that helps children with cancer.
The Castro-Limon Foundation was created 19 years go to raise funds to build and operate the home hospital of the Center for Oncology in Pediatrics. Over the years, 109 patients have been declared cancer-free, and thousands of people have embraced the dream of the organization’s founders Juan Carlos Castro Munguía and Irineo Limón Vargas.
COP offers a complete range of cancer treatment for children. As an example of COP’s effectiveness, Leukemia patients have an 83 percent survival right, and those with solid tumors have a 74 percent survival rate. That compares to a 55 percent survival rate across Mexico.
Oasis of Hope integrates research-based alternative cancer treatments with conventional therapies. Most Oasis of Hope treatments also can be available in the U.S. but not widely and not deployed in combination with other treatments that have proven effective.
Since its founding in 1963, Oasis of Hope has championed the immune system’s healing power over cancer. More than 100,000 patients have come to Oasis of Hope, from 60 nations, looking for alternatives to chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. The clinic’s 100 percent one-year survival rate for stage IV breast cancer patients compares to a 65 percent one-year survival rate in the U.S., according to National Cancer Institute figures cited by Oasis of Hope.
Oasis of Hope focuses on the patient first, where traditional western medicine treatments focus on the disease first and then the patient. Oasis of Hope is a world leader in alternative cancer treatments with close to 60 years of experience, 30 years more experience than Cancer Treatment Centers of America.
