- Very often as parents, we need someone to listen to us, someone to vent our concerns, rage and fears to. Aladina’s psychologists are essential in these situations
- Aladina has three psycho-oncologists who help the children and their families free of charge
- “I can only say good things about the psychological attention I received and give thanks for it, for me it was a great pillar that made this very easier.”
The emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis is extremely difficult for anyone to endure. After more than 10 years of intense work here at Aladina, we are aware of the importance of providing psychological help to our children and teenagers, as well as to their parents and siblings.
We believe that free, personalized therapeutic care is vital. That’s why Aladina has hired three psycho-oncologists; two in Madrid (at the Hospital Niño Jesús and at the Hospital Gregorio Marañón) and one in Vizcaya (at the Hospital Cruces). We also offer free therapy to parents, siblings, and sick children in a private office outside of the hospital.
Our experts work closely with our children and teenagers, providing them with tools to help them overcome their fears and concerns. Offering support and guidance to their parents is also essential, both in the treatment process and/or in the case of a tragic loss. Because of this, we have created grief groups where family members can fully express themselves and, above all, feel like they aren’t alone.
