The core of our activity is supporting patients in going through cancer. We do that in many ways. We guide patients and their families through the complexities of oncological care and help collect funds for treatment that is not refunded by the Polish National Health Fund (NFZ). In 2019 only, we helped 82 Beneficiaries raise almost PLN 4 000 000 to cover the costs of treatment and rehabilitation, as well as related expenses. We offer free psycho-oncological assistance and, additionally, psychological help through a helpline every Wednesday. We organize beauty, personal development and arts & crafts workshops for about 400 women every year.
Under the “Libraries” project, Rak’n’Roll Foundation’s volunteers furnish oncological wards with bookshelves and books motivating to fight the disease and providing knowledge about cancer, effective methods of treatment and self-care.
The “Oncological Waiting Rooms” project is aimed at renovating and decorating oncological waiting rooms, to make the wait a bit more pleasant and make the patient focus on things other than the problem that brought them there.
