In Spain, more than 270,000 new cases of cancer are diagnosed every year. More than 26,000 of these new diagnoses are people at risk of social exclusion. In fact, nearly 10,000 of them are unemployed and more than a half don’t receive any help. 

Coinciding with the World Cancer Day, which is celebrated today February 4, many of the companies who collaborate with us, have started different fundraising campaigns to help people with cancer in vulnerable situations.
