General Goal

Offering to people from Piracicaba (and its region) the equipment of Bronchoscopy and Video Naso-Pharyngo-Laryngoscope for the early detection of Lung, Mouth, Head and Neck tumors, free of charge.


- There is a waiting line, in Piracicaba City health department, with 7,600 people, or a 2-year waiting time, for endoscopic and bronchopulmonary procedures.

- The Ilumina Foundation was contemplated, in the Hospital Ilumina project, with a wing especially built for housing the Endoscopy Center, for the early diagnosis of cancers in the gastrointestinal and pulmonary tracts in their early stages.

- For this to come true, just the pieces of equipment are necessary for giving the exams a kick-off.

Note: as of July 1, 2015 there is a 5% additional support fee for cash contributions. This fee does not appear in the financials above because it does not apply if the funds are sent directly to the project account (without going through TRF, and therefore without Paul Harris credit). Clubs sending their cash contribution to TRF must be aware they will have to send an additional 5%.
