The diagnosis of cancer in a child or adolescent means that families have to deal with a series of changes that can be problematic. We are dealing with a serious long-term illness that requires long periods of admission away from home. The change of territory, the labor reorganization, the economic expenses derived from the disease are subjects to work from the social attention.

At AFANOC Lleida we provide, throughout the process, support and advice in the management of benefits, services and applications (educational, health, labor and social). When families return to their home population, our goal is to pick up on their demands and spot the needs to be able to accompany them. From the delegation we coordinate with other entities, institutions and services of the territory to launch new areas of action and new forms of intervention.
