“The Department of Health is particularly attentive to the prevention of cancer. In terms of public health awareness this is essential,” Mr Gamerdinger said.

Members of the Écoute Cancer Réconfort Monaco visit patients and their families at the Princess Grace Hospital, as well as at the association’s premises.

President Valerie Barilaro said that during 2018 the association will hold a well-being weekend for fifteen patients, which she described as “a vital renewal for them”.
