The Sandy Christman Foundation (SCF) is an emerging philanthropy raising money through charitable contribution’s to support health-care and health care professionals with a particular interest in the Kagera region of northwestern Tanzania.
SCF was established in 2000 to raise awareness and promote the ideals of Sandy Christman, P.A.-C who died of breast cancer in 1999 at the age of 38. During her 12-year battle with cancer, Sandy made a difference in the lives of countless patients. She was and remains a true inspiration to the patients she treated and colleagues with whom she worked. Her perseverance, compassion, and pursuit of excellence embodied her remarkable passion for medicine and life.
