Zoé4life donates 150,000 francs to childhood cancer research

In less than three years, Zoé4life has funded over 430,000.- francs of research into childhood cancer in Switzerland. This is an amazing accomplishment for a non-profit organization run entirely by volunteers.

It was with great honour that the members of Zoé4life’s executive committee anounced their continued support of the Swiss Paediatric Oncology Group.

The Swiss Paediatric Oncology Group (SPOG) is an association whose objective it is to advance clinical, i.e. directly patient-focused paediatric cancer research. Its members are hospital departments in Switzerland that treat children and adolescents with cancer.

SPOG works nation-wide in Switzerland and maintains intense cooperation with leading international research groups.

Zoé4life supports the Swiss Paediatric Oncology Group within their specific research to better treat cancer in children suffering from a relapse. Through this financial support, new research projects are being launched more rapidly.

The cheque awarded by Zoe4life to this specific project represents a year’s worth of work to raise funds.

In Switzerland, a child dies every week from cancer. Zoé4life is committed to accelerating research in order to cure more children and ensure survivors have a better quality of life.
