The actions carried out to achieve this objective are: to publicize the existence of childhood cancer; offer social and psychological care; facilitate the educational integration of the child; provide family leisure activities; have accommodation for families in transfer; improve hospital facilities and equipment; manage and provide financial aid; facilitate possible travel to other regions; and enhance and improve health care for children.
Little Brave is available to families at its headquarters in Gran Canaria, Tenerife and Lanzarote. It currently also has a space in Fuerteventura. They also have three floors to accommodate families who are forced to move, both in Gran Canaria and Tenerife and in Madrid.
Among the achievements that the association has noted is that of achieving a unified criterion for the recognition of the degree of disability for minors with cancer in the Canary Islands. In addition, the approval of the demand for 33% disability of the minor with cancer was obtained, throughout Spain.
They have also been able to achieve the remodeling of the Pediatric Oncohematology Unit and the Neonatology Unit of the Maternal-Infant Hospital, the Pediatric Unit of the University Hospital of the Canary Islands under the project Hospitales de Colores, and the Hospital Nuestra Señora de la Candelaria.
On the other hand, one of the projects that the leaders of Little Brave are most proud of is Risopérate, a fun program that aims to playfully accompany children who are going to receive treatment.
