KEY OBJECTIVES AND KEY INITIATIVES
The Colombian Foundation of Leukemia and Lymphoma was inspired in similar organizations around the world focused in this two types of cancer. In Colombia there was a lack of a foundation oriented specifically in the most frecuent cancers in childhood and adulthood, leukemia and lymphoma.
Yolima Méndez, as the director of the foundation and family of a patient, knows the needs of people with cancer in the country, and so she decided to found FCL to develope actions and strategies aimed to abate the impact generated by the disease on patients and their families.
The foundation focuses today on informing, orienting, educating and providing psychosocial support to people living with leukemia, lymphoma, myeloma and other hemato-oncological diseases, as well as their families and carers.

Ante todo disculpa las demoras.
En Colombia desafortunadame nte no poseemos ni registro de donantes ni bancos de médula osea. Luego de descartar que tengas familiares compatibles para trasplante, al médico tratante le corresponde hacer la búsqueda en bancos internacionales .
Me gustaría ponerme en contacto contigo. No dudes en contactarte con nosotros a los números de contacto que aparecen aquí o escribirnos al correo de la fundación.
Para nosotros es un palcer poderte orientar y apoyar en el proceso de enfermedad y tratamiento.
