ASPANOB (association of parents of children affected by cancer in the Balearic Islands) was created in 1987 by a group of parents who met in order to improve the quality of life of kids between 0 and 18 years with cancer and their families in the Balearic Islands. Since then, ASPANOB has been growing, working day by day with the satisfaction of seeing, year after year, how their activities increased and more important programmes expanded.
Our association, after twenty years, is still faithful to the principles and objectives that motivated its creation. All ASPANOB activities are aimed at helping and giving support to kids with cancer and their families, to improve the family’s acceptance and dealing with the illness, the detection of problems and the family’s needs, providing the necessary solutions.
Our Association helps to provide a dignant life by multiplying its activities in order to try to cover shortages that arise from the bosom of a family when one of its children is diagnosed as having cancer.
Voluntary help and goodwill of the general public is essential to ASPANOB to support parents who do not have the power to get through this emotional toll alone. Our members, institutions and the collaboration of people sensitive towards our problem are the ones who make ASPANOB possible.
