for children with cancer
When a child is diagnosed with cancer, the lives of an entire family are changed forever. Childhood cancer is just as much a psychological disease as it is a physical one.
Psychologists help families overcome trauma and increase resilience during what is typically the multiyear — even lifetime — process of dealing with cancer.
In Aladina we ensure the children and families’ needs are addressed.
Our team of 8 psycho-oncologists currently treat patients and families at: Hospital Niño Jesús, Hospital Gregorio Marañón, Hospital de Cruces (Vizcaya), and Hospital Universitario de Santiago de Compostela, Hospital Vall d’Hebrón (Barcelona) and Hospital Reina Sofía (Córdoba) on a daily basis.
We also have an outpatient space where we work with siblings and other family members.
