This agreement also includes the support of volunteers who have suffered from this disease, which means sharing similar experiences that help the patient to feel understood.

The scope of action of this collaboration, which is valid for two years, is limited to the medical and surgical-medical services of Hematology and Internal Medicine, but the care will be extended to all oncological patients admitted to the hospital.

The Association of Yecla of Cancer Affected emerged in 2013 in response to the existing demand for specialized personnel for the treatment and relief of people affected by cancer, as well as their families.
