Support research and training
Research and specialized training for doctors are key tools for improving the fight against child cancer.
We are well aware there has been much medical and scientific progress in the last few years concerning Pediatric Oncology and Hematology. The quality of life of children undergoing treatment has improved substantially and there has been a significant increase in healing and survival rates.
Our Foundation believes in supporting progress and providing financial aid for the training of medical doctors in Pediatric Oncology and Hematology as well as in maintaining important resources.
Since 1997, our Foundation has subsidized the Spanish Registry of Infantile Tumors (RETI-SEHOP) located at the University of Valencia. This registry is in touch and exchanges information with international registries. It includes all infantile tumors diagnosed in Spain every year.
The Foundation awards training grants to medical doctors willing to specialize in Pediatric Oncology and Hematology. The candidates are put forward by the heads of department from different hospitals. Since its inception, the foundation has granted 41 training scholarships.
The Spanish Working Party for Bone Marrow Transplantation in Children (Grupo Español de Transplante de Médula Ósea en Niños, GETMON) has received economic contributions from our foundation. Also, we have awarded three research grants in the fields of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology.
