Place: Neuchâtel (Switzerland)
Objective: Visit children with cancer hospitalised in the paediatric oncology floor at the hospital and their families.
Collaborators: Zenith / Gilbert Facchinetti Foundation
One of Eric Abidal Foundation pillars is having first-hand knowledge of medical centres that improve the well-being of children and youth with cancer and that of their families; thus the visit to the Lausanne University Hospital (CHUV). In his visit, Eric Abidal could know first-hand the paediatric service, treatments and evolutions of this iconic centre in children oncology. The visit finished with some surprises for the children such as football tables and Xamax FCS shirts.
Eric Abidal Foundation had the opportunity to know a little bit more about Neuchâtel canton (Switzerland) and its beautiful city, being welcomed by the local authorities. Moreover, Eric Abidal took the opportunity to go to the training session and share some time with the players of the local team, Neuchâtel Xamax FCS, which is closely linked to Gilbert Facchinetti Foundation actions.
