International Childhood Cancer Day

On Saturday February 15 it's International Childhood Cancer Day, a day on which we reflect on the effects of pediatric cancer. In the run-up to this day, our ambassadors will take you with them into the world of childhood cancer.


Ambassador Bas Smit spoke with Dr. Wouter Kollen about quality of life. Because in the Princess Máxima Center we not only want to cure as many children as possible, we also want to do this in a better way. How can we ensure that the child, but also parents, brothers and sisters, feel as good as possible in a difficult time?

This week we also created a place in the Princess Máxima Center where children, parents, visitors and employees can reflect on what this day means to them. You can find the thought wall on the window in the central hall.
