DID YOU KNOW THAT PAEDIATRIC CANCER IS THE MAIN CAUSE OF DEATH FOR ILLNESS IN CHILDREN WITH MORE THAN 1 YEAR?
AND THAT YEARLY THE DISEASE HITS ABOUT 250 THOUSAND CHILDREN WORLDWIDE? IN PORTUGAL, ABOUT 400 CHILDREN PER YEAR ARE AFFECTED BY THIS DISEASE.
In order to achieve its objectives, the Rio Osório de Castro Foundation is committed to articulating efforts and supporting the community in order to achieve better results.
Help us to give these children and parents the encouragement, hope and strength necessary to better accept and live the disease. The contribution in the field of paediatric oncology will allow these children and youth and their families to overcome the disease in the best possible way and to live with a greater and considerable quality of life.
