Happy to announce that 10% of the proceeds from 1st to 31st December will be donated to the Piedmontese Foundation for Cancer Research Onlus which created the Candiolo Institute - IRCCS.
The Piedmontese Foundation for Cancer Research Onlus was established in 1986 to offer a significant contribution to the defeat of cancer through the creation of an oncological center in Piedmont, the Candiolo Institute (Turin), capable of combining scientific research with clinical practice and to make the best human and technological resources available to cancer patients.
The Piedmontese Foundation for Cancer Research deals with finding economic resources through fundraising activities and organizes all the initiatives and events necessary to achieve this goal.
The Istituto di Candiolo - IRCCS is the only Italian cancer research and treatment center created exclusively through the support of over 300,000 private donors who, thanks to their generosity, have made it a center of international importance. The Candiolo Institute is also the only "Scientific Hospitalization and Care Institute" in Piedmont, recognized by the Ministry of Health, testifying to the important discoveries made and published in the most prestigious international scientific journals. It is included in the Piedmont and Valle d'Aosta Oncology Network and its services are provided in agreement with the National Health Service or as a freelancer. It started its activity in 1996 and has since developed new spaces and services. Today it covers 56,500 m2, of which around 10,000 are dedicated to research. About 600 people work in Candiolo, including doctors, Italian and international researchers, nurses, administrative staff and technicians.
The Foundation has planned an important development plan for the coming years that will allow the Institute to grow further, thus acquiring new spaces to be made available to doctors, researchers and, above all, patients and people close to them. The goal is to treat more and more people and better and better.
