Family social support

The diagnosis of a dangerous disease such as cancer is a very hard test not only for the  people who are sick but for their families as well. When the sick person is a child or youngster, the situation becomes especially difficult. It is an unexpected event with a tremendous impact on the affected child or teenager and also on family members and inner circle. The first big effect to be faced will be breaking with daily routines, the previous family organization and all plans for the immediate future. Together with the emotional impact of the diagnosis and the hard medical treatments applied, it will be necessary to deal with a list of obstacles of different kinds that will be present along the whole process.

That's why the family unit is at the center of attention in our support programs. Providing support to the families is one of the priorities of our work.

We put different resources
at the disposal of the families to facilitate the process

Economic help

We deal with requests and applications on behalf of families undergoing economic hardship.

Accommodation for
families temporarily
out of their homes

We offer accommodation in flats or apartments to families who have to move from their place of origin to get medical treatment for their sick children. This way they can be near their hospitalized child or have easier access to treatment at an outpatient healthcare center.

Accompaniment, play and reduction of family burden

The work of volunteers, both in hospital and at home, facilitates resting, playing and entertainment at all times.
