Mijas, October 19, 2020.-
In recognition of World Breast Cancer Day, Fundación CLC World presented AECC with a €3,000 donation.
The donation symbolises the continuing support of the Mijas organisation to women who suffer from this disease and reminds them that they are not alone.
The president and vice president of the Spanish Association Against Cancer (AECC) of Mijas-Fuengirola, Paula Casas and Paloma Gómez, expressed their gratitude to the Foundation.
“This will go towards covering the day to day running of the group both in psychological, social and therapeutic support. Also, due to the health crisis we are experiencing, many patients request direct financial aid to cover basic treatment needs.”
Every week, more than 100 users receive assistance either in person or through the workshops and online activities organised by the group.
“We cannot forget that we have to fight for early detection and solve all appointment issues derived from Covid-19,” Paloma Gómez highlighted. The early detection of breast cancer, through the use of mammography and other techniques, is fundamental as it changes the prognosis of the disease.
