Description

When medicine proves to be powerless to cure a child suffering from cancer, there remains the path of accompaniment by what we call palliative care. This is very different from the treatments that have been administered up to now - since they are not intended to cure - and its main objective is to create a comfortable living environment, a warm and reassuring climate around the young patient and his family.
