Exercise program - Fundación Aladina
 

Physical exercise
for cancer patients


Children with cancer go from having a normal active childhood to being stuck in a hospital bed with little or no physical activity.

It has been proven that exercise is beneficial to pediatric cancer patients. It improves their general physical state and mood as well as minimizing chemotherapy and radiation’s toxicity and other side effects.

 
 

Aladina physical activity team, offers kids with cancer supervised and personalized exercise sessions. We are currently offering this program in three hospitals in Madrid: Hospital Niño Jesús, Hospital Gregorio Marañón and Hospital 12 de Octubre as well as through online sessions.


Also, since 2017 we offer “Aladina's Sports Scholarships”for children with cancer and their caregivers. They take place in a very special gym, in Madrid, TANDEM, and are supervised by our wonderful team.

Parents take yoga, Pilates, or relaxation classes while the kids enjoy their training sessions with their friends.
