State Decoration to be Bestowed upon Head of Gift of Life Cancer Treatment Foundation Toivo Tänavsuu

The Order of the Red Cross, 4th class, will be bestowed upon Toivo Tänavsuu by the President of Estonia ahead of the Estonian centennial for his helping of cancer patients. Also, on the 5th four years passed since the foundation of the Gift of Life Cancer Treatment Foundation. 

"It is an honourable and unexpected recognition of the foundation's efforts," said Toivo Tänavsuu, the head of the Gift of Life Cancer Treatment Foundation. "If I could bestow accolade, I would bestow these on the foundation's benefactors. Last year more than 20,000 people and companies supported the foundation. We only exist thanks to them. Owing much to them we have managed to support every cancer patient who has requested our aid and belongs to our target group – this is the most important fact of the day."


The Order of the Red Cross was instituted by the Estonian Red Cross Society in 1920. It is bestowed for services rendered in the interest of the Estonian people and for saving lives. The Order of the Red Cross comprises six classes.

 

The Gift of Life Cancer Treatment Foundation celebrated its 4th anniversary on the 5th of February.
