"I'm not crazy - I'm clever enough to get help!"
In Germany 436,000 men and women are diagnosed with cancer each year. Five million people live with their illness. However, a lot more are affected!
Because when someone has cancer it has an impact on family and friends too: the strain of treatment, the change to everyday life. Unusual questions need answering, feelings such as despondency and fear are a source of stress for those affected.
Since 1999 this Munich-based association has been providing support for cancer patients and their relatives - including children.

A striking characteristic of this centre is the possibility to extensively treat all illnesses of the pancreatic system at the highest level. The focus is not only on diagnosis and therapy of the malignant illnesses of the pancreas but also on the acute and chronic infections of the pancreas (pancreatitis) and transplantation of the pancreas.
The diagnosis of cancer represents a significant watershed in life. Trust in the reliability of the body is often shaken. Social relationships, work situations, value systems and perspectives on life often change. For 25 years we have been offering advice to affected persons and their relatives. Your questions and feelings in connection to the illness and new life situation can be discussed with us. As a foundation of our work we respect the uniqueness of people and offer individual support in respect to their personal needs and questions.
