15th of February is International Childhood Cancer day. With a fatality rate still close to 20%, childhood cancer requires specific medicines and treatment. Thus, research in this area is essential.
Sant Joan de Déu Children’s Hospital, based in Barcelona, is equipped with a lab where 30 professionals are researching every day. 70% of the budget are donations arriving from private entities and solidarity individuals who make it possible.
The non-profit organisation “MUA Solidaris” with whom Lasenor has already co-operated in the past, is raising funds to finance the research activities of Sant Joan de Déu Hospital against childhood cancer.
The event proposed by “MUA Solidaris” for the next 15th of February is a “Solidarity Hot Chocolate”: a sweet activity that will take place in different schools where students, relatives, friends and the educational community will share a solidarity afternoon snack while contributing to research and promoting social fellow-feeling and participation.
Private entities are of course invited to collaborate and hence, Lasenor will participate with a donation.
