Challenge

Cancer does not discriminate against age, social status or place of origin. Many children diagnosed with cancer must leave their homes and cities of origin, because in their regions there are no oncology centers to be treated and, therefore, they must travel to Santiago with a family member or guardian.

Solution

Currently, Fundacion Nuestros Hijos has three shelters with the necessary conditions to care for an immunocompromised child and his or her caregiver.

Long-Term Impact

More and more children will be able to have access to treatment in Santiago without the additional expense of renting in that city.
