Founded in 1989, the Fundació Enriqueta Villavecchia aims to provide comprehensive coverage of the needs of children and young people suffering from cancer.

The entity's project focuses on detecting and responding to the needs that arise in the different phases of childhood and young oncology disease, improving their environment and providing resources to help their families.

To this end, the Foundation has a training aid program, which consists of the granting of training fellowships in pediatric oncology and hematology. Through these grants and in strict coordination with the health care services, it is possible for doctors who want to dedicate themselves to these specialties, to be trained in medical teams of reference units of the Catalan hospitals.
