What is "Project Chernobyl"
Project Chernobyl is a not for profit organization, that brings together leaders of Russian speaking community, political representatives and health care professionals to direct their combined effort in order to facilitate an early diagnostic and treatment of thyroid cancer among victims of Chernobyl nuclear disaster, that currently reside in United States of America.
Project Chernobyl provides help for people who resided on the territory of the former Soviet Union and have been exposed to the harmful radiation due to the Chernobyl disaster.
Currently, due to the sharp rise of cases of thyroid cancer, the risk for people who is already been exposed to high level of radiation, increase dramatically.
According to latest studies, adults can experience the first symptoms of thyroid cancer as late as 20 years after the initial exposure. In the next decade, the number of patients who will be diagnosed with thyroid cancer will significantly increase.
An early diagnostic, as always, will increase the chances of successfully treatment and recovery.
People who resided on the territory of Ukraine, Byelorussia and Russia belong to a high risk group. Risk increases if anyone has been exposed to radiation as a child.
Project participants are eligible for a complete medical examination and treatment of thyroid cancer. Patients will be directed to various medical centers, conveniently located throughout greater New York area. In the future, the services will be available in other city’s in United States of America.
