Christmas Donation 2016

“There’s one happiness in life: to be loved” (Joan Manuel Serrat)

With this year’s Christmas donation, we would like to support children and adolescents in Mexico in their battle against cancer. Since November 2013, the Mexican foundation Teletón in Queretaro has been operating a clinic specializing in treating children suffering from cancer (Hospital Infantil Teletón de Oncología HITO). The clinic disposes of state-of-the-art equipment for diagnostics and treatment in line with international standards.

The staff also cares for the patients' and their families’ environment. In “Casa Teletón”, the children can live together with a relative for the entire duration of the treatment. This feeling of security contributes to the success of the treatment; the patients can even continue their schooling in the clinic. Volunteers provide for entertainment on a regular basis by offering game and handicraft sessions.

As the hospital is financed exclusively by donations, our campaign ensures the purchase of essential medication for future treatments.

emz-Hanauer wishes the team and children of the Hospital Infantil Teletón de Oncología HITO Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
