Tumore, ma non Timore (Tumour, but not fear)
The project "Tumore, ma non timore", funded within the call «Puglia Capitale Sociale 3.0 – Linea A», Fondo per il finanziamento di progetti e attività di interesse generale nel Terzo Settore, ai sensi degli artt. 72 e 73 del D.Lgs. 117/2017 Codice del Terzo Settore, was born with the aim to ensure the quality and dignity of life for patients with cancer during the difficult time of the disease.

The project aims at providing the right emotional and psychological support both for patient and family, acting as facilitators in the use of healthcare services at public healthcare facilities, and supporting physical recovery through proper nutrition. The project also foresees activities related to entertainment (traveling library, home film library, group motor activities, recreational events) and promotion of correct and adequate information on cancer and prevention. Precisely in this filed, Fondazione Gianni Benzi has started a Training & Education path and the promotion of innovative medicines and patient empowerment.
