History:

In 1989 a little girl with tumor was registered at our Clinic. Her family was always taking part in the work of the nursing team and they saw directly the other children’s fight against the disease, the often unbearable pain, but also their persistence and the indescribable happiness after recovery. They decided to establish a Foundation for the Children with Leukemia who are treated in the Department of Pediatrics of the University of Debrecen.

Our doctors heal children with tumor from the establishment of the Department of Pediatrics of the University of Debrecen. The most common tumor in childhood is the leukemia. The average recovery rate is 80 % for the children with acute lymphoid leukemia whose disease recognized in time as today’s complex treatment techniques are developing. The treatment and care can have a long run, maybe years and we have to keep the mental and somatic conditions of these children on the optimal level for the recovery. For the therapy of the children with leukemia it is essentially needed the well-qualified and experienced doctors. In our regional center we treat mostly the little patients from Hajdú-Bihar, Jász-Nagykun-Szolnok and Szabolcs-Szatmár-Bereg County.

Our Goals:

  • To procure the necessary but usually very expensive instruments, laboratory-equipments, medicaments.
  • To support clinical research.
  • To support training of doctors and nurses.
  • To cover the expenses of the holiday camp’s for children with leukemia.
  • To support those families who have narrow circumstances, e.g. covering the expenses of bone marrow transplantations.
  • To help the adaptation of recovered children.

We treat 80-100 children a year and we care hundreds of them at the outpatient clinic. At the separated Hematology-oncology Ward the families of the little patients have the opportunity of contributing in the nursing of the children and caring about their mental balance.

We are increasing the capital of the foundation with the generous help of the kind persons, communities and companies and by organizing benefit concerts.

Our special goals for the year 2009 we help covering the operational costs of the first Pediatric Hematology-Oncology Department in Hungary. We hope that creating a new “unit” will help us improving the effectiveness and success in recovery of the children with leukemia and other tumors.
