Summary

The Asociacion Mexicana de Lucha contra el Cancer, which translates to the Mexican Association to Fight Cancer, is a highly esteemed civil society organization in Mexico. We organize various workshops for patients, offer guidance, and provide free psychological support through different specialists who have volunteered their services. We are convinced that cancer can become a chronic condition in some cases. 2 monthly workshops are given to serve a total of 40 monthly attendees.

Challenge

Several studies have proven the importance of psychological therapy in improving patients' adherence to treatment, enhancing their emotional management skills, and increasing their levels of well-being. In 2024, we are working on building a new space dedicated to patients. This house will have different areas adapted for workshops, conferences, yoga classes, spaces for recreation and relaxation, and other activities to help our visitors feel at home.

Solution

We want to provide a warm, supportive, and understanding environment to make their journey more comfortable and bearable. We want to change the way cancer is viewed. Teach patients that their illness does not determine them and that they can change their perspective on it. Help us change their vision of how to live with cancer, transforming their thinking so we can also transform their reality.

Long-Term Impact

In one year, it is expected to serve 480 direct beneficiaries and 1,440 indirect beneficiaries (caregivers and family members). At the end of the workshop, these beneficiaries will have greater tools and skills that promote better adherence to their treatment, knowledge of their rights and how to exercise them, they will know how to navigate the public health system to have access to better treatments, medications and specialized studies.
