Summary

Fundacion Nuestros Hijos provides free integral support to disadvantaged children with cancer in order to increase their life expectancy, improve quality of life, and decrease the psychosocial impact of the illness. With your help, we will build a world-class Childhood Cancer Center to improve every patient's chances of survival and bring them the best possible quality of life. We want to expand our services beyond Chile and serve more children and their families.

Challenge

Cancer treatment reduces the immune defenses of children, so transport represent a great risk for them. Today our services are located in different locations and we would like to consolidate them all in one place. In addition, because cancer treatment for teenagers (15-19 years) is similar than children treatment, and because in Chile the chances of surviving cancer are better than in the rest of Latin America, we would like to expand our coverage to support teenagers and neighboring countries.

Solution

All donations to this fund will be used to build a new integral center for children with cancer. This new center will increase our housing capacity from 19 to 63 families and our support capacity from 100.000 to 150.000 annual services. We will be able to consolidate all our services in one place, and be able to expand our coverage to teenagers and families from the rest of Latin America.

Long-Term Impact

Cancer has a huge impact on the lives of children and their families, supporting them today, during their recovery, is crucial for their future. Fundacion Nuestros Hijos complements and improves existing services for cancer patients through a variety of social and medical programs, as well as other education, research initiatives and social reintegration programs. We want to lead the Latin American training of professionals and replicate the model in other countries.
