From Fundación Cudeca – Cancer Care, we are delighted to inform you that today has been a very special day for Cudeca: the President and Founder, Joan Hunt O.B.E., together with the Chief Executive and Medical Director, Marisa Martín; Deputy Chief Executive and Financial Director, Rafael Olalla; Manager of Communications and Fundraising, Rocío Torres, were invited to a press conference called by Antonio Banderas for the presentation of the Foundation “Lágrimas y Favores” (Tears and Favours), whose trustees include the Mayor of Málaga, D. Francisco de la Torre and Tita Cervera (Baroness Carmen Von Thysen).
Many of the Trustees attended the conference, including the Málaga Mayor and the University Rector, Dña. Adelaida de la Calle, together with international, national and local media.
During the press conference, Antonio Banderas confirmed that his foundation will have two objectives: to support Málaga University and Fundación Cudeca.
Antonio dedicated kind words of praise and admiration for our work, and highlighted the importance of becoming a benefactor of Cudeca to ensure its continuation, not only for this year, but also for the future. With this in mind, the help offered to Cudeca by his new Foundation “Lágrimas y Favores” will be based primarily on promoting the campaign for recruiting new benefactors for Cudeca: from members of the Malaga brotherhoods to all of the Málaga population, residents of the province and families that have received our Special Kind of Caring.
In addition to the above, Antonio Banderas presented our President, Joan Hunt, with an undertaking to donate 10.000€ within the next few days.
This very important moment for Cudeca has been made possible thanks to more than a year’s work of public relations and communications by Rocío Torres. We would like to thank and congratulate her for this project which means so much to Cudeca.
Cudeca gives free care to those suffering from cancer and other illnesses in an advanced state, also to their families, following the philosophy of Palliative Care.
