From April 15, 2019 the Fondazione Umberto Veronesi is Charity Partner of the initiative. For this reason, all the Italian proceeds from the sales of the track will be donated to the Foundation in support of the research on pediatric brain tumors. Abroad, the sales will support the brain tumor group at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York, and the brain tumor group of EORTC (European Organization for Reaserch and Treatment of Cancer).
“Dr. Bazzoli has beautifully captured the struggles of patients suffering from a serious illness such as cancer which affects their families and threatens their humanity. The physician must bring kindness and empathy as well as scientific knowledge to the bedside. Dr. Bazzoli participated in scientific research at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York during her training, and made significant contributions. However, she reminds us that with every patient encounter, we have the opportunity to heal even if we don’t cure, and that both physicians and patients are nurtured by a shared culture of hope and compassion.”Lisa M.

From April the project will sustain, in Italy, theFondazione Umberto Veronesi and the scientific research on brain tumors, also focusing on the pediatric forms.
The Umberto Veronesi Foundation was born in 2003 at the initiative of the Prof. Umberto Veronesi with the dual aim of sustaining the most advanced scientific research, and promoting awareness and education campaigns concerning health, so that scientific findings can be at everyone’s disposal.
From 2014 the Foundation is concretely active in the field of children oncology through a campaign that aims at raising funds to sustain the work of the best researchers, who are strongly engaged in finding new treatments for children affected by tumor.
At the same time, it sustains the introduction of medical protocols, so that young patients could receive the best treatments they could get for their disease, which are in accordance with standards given by the international scientific community.
Last but not least, thanks to the campaign, the Foundation spreads awareness and delivers full information on brain tumors in children and young adults, paying particular attention to the youngest and schools.
