Family social support
To help a children or a youngster with a serious disease we must help their family giving support in the social area
The diagnosis of a dangerous disease 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 change 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.
