Helping patients with cancer

In addition to working for cancer research, the Spanish Association Against Cancer focuses on helping patients, especially those with fewer resources. Currently, the Association’s free services for patients and family members include medical-health advice, a general guidance service that clarifies doubts related to diagnosis, nursing and the side effects of treatments. They also provide psychological care, advice and support in coping with the emotional stress brought about by the disease and its treatments, and also social care, informing families and sufferers of social benefits and resources available to them.

The AECC counts on more than 30,000 people volunteers across the country whose work covers various areas of activity such as support, presence in hospitals or the organisation of events.
