Support for cancer researcha



The Spanish Cancer Support Association (AECC) launches its traditional fundraising campaign, which aims to raise funds for cancer research and to run free programmes and services for patients and their families.

This year Hospital CIMA is again collaborating with this collection to support and promote cancer research and to explore new forms of diagnosis and treatment. The hospital has the Early Diagnosis of Women’s Diseases Unit, a new unit dedicated to early detection of any type of cancer and to studying other common diseases in women, in addition to other s.

If you would like to take part in the fund raising campaign, you can get more information on (+34) 932 002 099.
