Looking ahead through CanSearch

CanSearch, a foundation specialized in childhood cancer finances projects as part of the HUG's paediatric haematology and oncology unit. The purpose of this unit is to treat children with cancer or blood diseases, and to carry out research in order to improve the understanding and treatment of these conditions.

In October 2015, more than 850,000 Swiss francs were raised at a party. This money will help CanSearch to continue its work and its fight against cancer. 50 years ago, curing a child with cancer was difficult to imagine. Today, over 70% of children with cancer and more than 80% of children with leukaemia can be cured.
