WHY?

Vision: To live in a world where everyone has equal rights and access to lifesaving medicine

Mission: To develop affordable treatment for all populations

Treatment for Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia is currently one of the highest-costing cancer treatments in the world.

 

Did you know that drugs for ALL cost around $178,000 per year???

We are excited to give a cheap treatment to people with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Our company is looking to make the cost of medications cheaper by testing the drugs in countries such as China and India. By working with these countries, we can bring new  technology to them, which can help people with acute lymphoblastic leukemia in countries other than the United States. Lastly, by working with other companies and organizations, we can make the current price of acute lymphoblastic leukemia treatments lower than ever.

HOW?

BSK Group can meet its goals by working with other organizations and companies such as…

  • Charities
  • Money from the government
  • Research organizations
  • Universities
