Swiss Cancer League

About Swiss Cancer League (http://www.liguecancer.ch)
The Swiss Cancer League provides valuable support for children whose lives are devastated by cancer, whether they are themselves the cancer sufferer or are living with a family member who is. When someone is diagnosed with cancer, the whole family is hit by the disease. All focus is, of necessity, on the patient but there are always other sufferers. This Swiss not-for-profit organisation is there for the children's needs outside of the medical treatment itself, whether psychological, social, educational or financial. The Swiss Cancer League is also active in funding research for the most common children's cancers and in providing education on how to prevent cancer.
