Report of playroom activities

IFIL sessions
IFIL sessions

The activities that are currently carried out for children and young people with cancer of the Oncopediatrics Clinic consist of making psychological profiles to each patient (between 2 and 18 years) to later provide them with free sessions of grapho therapy. The profiling is carried out by students of the Psychology career of the Forensic Institute of Latin American Research AC.,

The grapho therapy is directed by the Director of the aforementioned university. The grapho therapy is an integral therapeutic technique that consists of a scriptural education of letters or strokes, with the purpose of modifying the affective functioning of the person being able to correct certain negative aspects in behaviors and recognized for its excellent therapeutic results.

With these exercises it is possible to generate new conditioned reflexes in the functioning of the brain, useful for the management of depression, stress, hyperactivity, social relations, integration problems, learning and behavior, in children and adolescents, adults allow them to develop in a comprehensive and positive some behavioral traits that want to improve or change.

Being not dependent on the therapist, since it works through simple activities determined in each session and derived from the results of the individual profiling, which the patient can perform both in the Hospital and at home.

There are five initial sessions to obtain the psychological profile of each patient, after the expert in grapho therapy explain to parents what the patient can change by this therapy. 

It is estimated about 4 months to conclude this phase with patients, It is very important to mention that is a free service to parents and patients.

But this is a continuous process, and from the results we can know more about each patient and how our services can improve to make your stay more bearable. 

That is why today we ask again for your financial support to make these activities a permanent service.

Thank you very much for your support!

Report of free transportation for children with cancer

Acayucan to Coatzacoalcos
Acayucan to Coatzacoalcos

Hello dear friends,

We are currently have only 30% of members, having to make changes in the board of directors to allow us continue with this work. As a result we are choosing to pay transportation tickets for patients since the maintenance costs mainly of the Van unity are very high together with the administration costs . We are using only one of the vehicles. In this report we  provide proof of some expenses trough of the ticket bills and some of the vehicle maintenance costs.

Our results in vehicles are until today (January-actual):

544 transfers in vehicles of the association (travel 36,357 kilometers), 6,388 gasoline liters

More 150 tickets by bus

Many families from our city emigrated to other states including our sponsors, in search of better business opportunities. in our state are making efforts to improve economic conditions and in the medium term will activate the special economic zone where our city is, waiting for better opportunities. For our part we have some sources of extra income but we require the support of people as valuable as you to continue this project through the years to come.

Despite being relatively close to the first of recent earthquakes, we were not affected locally, but we sent aid to our neighbors mainly from Oaxaca.

We are in this work since 2011 and formally since 2012. On average there are usually 90 active enter patients and surveillance treated in the Regional Hospital. As mentioned above, these patients require our support as they come from marginalized communities, for their parents it is very difficult to pay for transportation during the duration of treatment since at least to leukemia patients talk about three years on average.

We thank you as always for your valuable donations and hope to continue to support us

Hello, first of all I wish you are very fine, and as always, with great pleasure I make you part of our activities.

In this report I will introduce you to some of our brave warriors, they are between 1 and 22 years old, in other report i will introduce you the other ones.

Some are active patients, other ones are patients surveillance after treatment.

Some today are no longer with us but they have left a deep imprint, and that is what drives us day by day to continue in this great challenge.

The photos are of creativity workshops that have had as part of the ludic activities. Her parents, mainly her moms, have participated in psychological support and also creativity workshops. For us it is very important to keep the recreational part inside the hospital because as children and youngsters they need distractors that make their stay in the hospital more bearable since once they start their treatment protocol, it lasts for many months.

We have Moi, today is a child of 2 years old (patient surveilance), Moisito visit us at the hospital each month.

Fatima is a beautiful girl who likes to draw an painting.

Dana also likes painting.

Gabriel have had many hours of happiness during workshops

Kim is a smart and naughty girl, model of many pictures

We have an angel now (16 years old) she was our main force to implement the playroom with an area to young people inside since she was always very serious but at the same time with an inner strength that could never come to life.

In the play center, games are used as a communication and expression means between the therapist and the patient in order to help the child to understand his/her behavior in a better way and to solve adaptation problems. In addition to the fact that playing is fundamental for children, it is also a means to explore their environment, which in turn helps children to understand their world better.

The purpose of the play center is that children and teenagers may develop their physical, perceptive and sensory skills. Through games, children can practice their social skills and interact; their emotional skills and transmit feelings and emotions; and their cognitive skills, and learn through social games.

Hoping to have your support back, thank you very much for your interest in our project.
