ANT ITALIA NON-PROFIT FOUNDATION – CANCER PATIENTS DURING COVID
2020 CONTRIBUTION: 5,000 euro
The support of private donors and companies was and remains absolutely indispensable to continue to offer protection to thousands of fragile individuals with a cancer diagnosis that has made them even more vulnerable to the threat of Covid-19. In fact, during such a challenging year, ANT physicians, nurses, and psychologists always guaranteed continuity of access to specialist assistance at home, supplied to the homes of more than 3,000 people in over 30 Italian provinces from the north to the south of the country, every day, free of charge, and in conditions of absolute safety. ANT faced the upheaval of the past year with passion and resolve, thanks to its solid underlying values and its highly structured organisation. The priority is to continue to guarantee a service that is indispensable to an enormous number of citizens. Regardless of the epidemic, home assistance for chronic patients and fragile elderly persons emerged clearly as a winning formula in terms of patient protection, economic sustainability, and level of satisfaction among families.
