20 years of Children's Oncology Centre in Łódź

Clinic of Paediatrics, Oncology, Haematology and Diabetology treats children from the region as well as little patients from all over the country. The staff at this clinic is known for their dedication and the research conducted at the Łódź clinic aims to introduce new, more effective methods of treating cancer in children. Other issues that the scientists aim to tackle are the early cancer diagnosis, which would allow doctors to begin the treatment at the early stage of disease and preventing complications. Such complex research requires state-of-the-art equipment, so the Board of the Foundation decided to equip oncological research and testing laboratory at the clinic with devices worth over 2,5 million PLN. 

Launched a year ago, ONCOLAB allows doctors to run detailed genetic tests and as a result, tailor treatment individually. Testing enables specialists to discover abnormalities in samples taken from recovering patients and adjust their treatments accordingly. 

The charity has also made a substantial contribution to the clinic, donating 594 pieces of equipment worth over 17 million PLN - among them are an ultrasonography machine, anaesthesia machine, orthopaedic operation table, optical tomography machine.
