Thanks to your support, we can contribute to the well-being of young people with cancer!
This year a young survivor of acute leukemia diagnosed since her childhood has arrived at the Foundation, who has become the new leader of the “Young People in Contact” initiative.
Sofía is 19 years old today and has accepted our invitation to lead the support and accompaniment of young people with cancer in active treatment. She lives in Medellín, and from there she connects with young people from different cities in the country, to find out how they are doing, to give them words of encouragement and motivation, and also to invite them to various virtual integration spaces, where they can share with other young people.
Alongside Sofía we continue to reach more young people with cancer who need to know that they are not alone and that the Foundation exists to support them and to tell them that cancer is much more than a disease, cancer is also learning, inspiration and life.
What do you think of the Youth in Contact group? Do you think that we bring well-being to young people with cancer through this initiative?
