LAVORO è CURA
Every year, about 370,000 people are diagnosed with cancer, more than 60,000 in the region of Lombardy, Italy, alone. They are accompanied on their journey of healing by family members, relatives and friends (so-called caregivers) who are involved in the fight to defeat the disease. The project Lavoro è Cura by the non-profit association Soleterre aims to support cancer patients and their caregivers in maintaining an active working and social life thanks to escort services tailored to their specific needs. For this reason, the initiative provides accurate information and personalised services to help manage the consequences of the illness and treatment in everything that affects working life, offers paths of sharing, and recreation, diversion, and community socialisation activities to strengthen the ability of cancer patients and caregivers to manage the psycho-physical consequences of the illness and treatment and aims to create networks between local players that help cancer patients and their caregivers to find and keep their jobs, by fostering the creation of relations and the exchange of information and good practices.
