Sometimes experiences generate promises, these promises become hopes and the hopes gradually lead to a new reality.
In the year 2000, Rosaria was diagnosed with lung cancer and I became involved in an arduous battle that would last nine years, during which time our crossed with Dr Antonio Santo and his team.
Hence my pledge that Rosaria's passing would give rise to a project based on love.
The great humanity, dedication and altruism that we have come to know became a source of hope for us and for our families.
We have chosen to share and increase this hope by creating this nonprofit organisation, with the aim of financing projects to develop and improve the care of thoracic oncology patients..
LUNG UNIT PESCHIERA
Director Dr Antonio Santo
The LUNG UNIT project was launched in November 2020.
The aims of this project are to improve patients' quality of life, their prospects of clinical benefit and survival. By optimising patient access to Thoracic Oncology, we reduce the need for access to the Emergency Department, as well as the number of admissions to other departments and unplanned specialist visits. Finally, we ensure prompt access to oncology consultations when acute oncology issues arise for patients undergoing active treatment.
Donating means contributing with scholarships to the specific training of new doctors and participating in the activation of services that can improve the management of toxicity and readiness to treat patients with lung cancer.
You too can help defeat the "Big Killer of Tumours" by making a small donation to the MARIA ROSARIA ONLUS Foundation.
