Elpida Youth

The mission of ELPIDA Youth, a branch of ELPIDA Association of Friends of Children with Cancer, is to raise awareness about and support the psychological wellbeing of children suffering from neoplastic diseases. ELPIDA Youth was founded in the summer of 2015 by a group of young members of ELPIDA aspiring to further build on its strong vision with new ideas and activities but always with the same love for the sick child and its family.

As per the World Health Organization, "health is a state of complete physical, mental and social wellbeing and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity." For cancer patients, and especially when these are children, emotional support and psychological wellbeing can help both them and their loved ones better manage the disease and its treatment.
