Dosis de Sonrisas Association supports IDIVAL research

25 de August de 2021

Today at IDIVAL we received a visit from the Dosis de Sonrisas Association, who have managed to raise €2,500 for research into childhood cancer research carried out by Dr. Mónica López Duarte. This was the association's largest donation to IDIVAL from the proceeds of the last few events they have held.

The association Dosis de Sonrisas was born to bring laughter and illusion in a selfless way to all the hospitals in Spain. An initiative set up by Jesús Jiménez Pérez as a result of a family case of leukaemia and in which they saw that one of the medicines for recovery was laughter.

The association organises charity shows and events of all kinds to generate the money needed to cover the cost of travel and the different expenses (gifts, material…) for hospital visits.

Over the last few years, the association has made a tour of visits to different hospitals. Taking advantage of the professional tour of the magician Xuso, he visited the hospitals in each city. Thanks to this situation, in addition to the Valdecilla Hospital, they have extended their frontiers to hospitals in Madrid, Ávila, Salamanca, León, Valladolid and Palencia.

IDIVAL would like to thank this association for the great work they are doing to make children laugh and for the important contribution they are making to research into childhood cancer.
