It dedicates its efforts to showing the reality of cancer in Spain, detecting areas for improvement and launching a process of social transformation that allows them to be corrected in order to obtain a
comprehensive and multidisciplinary cancer.

Being by people's side is in her DNA, so her work is also aimed at helping them
prevent cancer; being with them and their families throughout the disease process, if diagnosed; and improve their future by promoting cancer research.

In this sense, through its Scientific Foundation, the Association brings together the social demand for cancer research, financing quality scientific cancer research programs through public competition. Today, it is the social and private entity that allocates the most funds to cancer research: 92 million euros in
525 projects, in which more than 1,000 researchers participate.

The Association integrates patients, family members, volunteers and professionals who work together to prevent, raise awareness, accompany affected people and finance cancer research projects that will allow better diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Structured in 52 Provincial Headquarters, and present in more than 2,000 Spanish towns, it has almost 30,000 volunteers, more than 500,000 members and almost 1,000 professionals.
