Alcantarilla also joins the challenge for Pablo (16/03/2018)

The Town Hall of Sewer, along with the Federation of Associations of Mothers and Parents of Students of our municipality have joined the challenge "We support Pablo and you? ...", with which it is intended to raise funds to cover funds of patients with neuroblastoma, a cancer in childhood.

A total of 3,000 euros that have been collected by students in different schools in our city.

The mayor of Alcantarilla, Joaquín Buendía, the Councilor for Social Welfare, Francisca Terol, as well as the presidents of the FAMPAMA, Salvador Ruiz Baeza and the Spanish Association Against Cancer of the Sewer, Pedro Hernández Caballero, were present. to military paratroopers of the "Zaragoza" 5 Infantry Regiment, place where the people who have been walking for three days will spend three days traveling 150 kilometers, from Cieza to Totana: the first stage will be Cieza-Archena, the second Archena- Culvert and the third and last Culvert-Totana.

The initiative aims to make this disease visible in society and raise funds and collaborate with the Association of Relatives and Friends of Patients with Neuroblastoma (Nen) to encourage research into this uncommon pathology of the sympathetic nervous system.

Neuroblastoma is a disease in which malignant (cancerous) cells form from neuroblasts (immature nerve tissue) of the adrenal gland, neck, chest, or spinal cord.

It is the third most frequent tumor during the first two years of life, and after tumors of the central nervous system as a whole, the most frequent solid tumor of the child, representing 8-10% of pediatric tumors and diagnosing about 50 new cases every year in Spain.

The challenge is that a group of four residents of Totana have traveled during these three days the municipalities of Cieza, Abarán, Blanca, Ricote, Ojós, Ulea, Villanueva del Segura, Archena, Lorquí, Ceuta, Alguazas, Las Torres de Cotillas, Molina de Segura, Alcantarilla, Librilla, Alhama de Murcia and Totana with the aim of raising as much money as possible for the "Pablo Challenge".

Pablo is a five year old boy, resident in Albacete, who when he was 2 years and nine months was diagnosed with stage IV disease, being one of the lowest surviving pediatric tumors.

Pablo's challenge was born as a private initiative to raise funds that are normally allocated to public hospitals to investigate this rare pathology;

and after a year, funds have been raised for the Nen Association, which collaborates with numerous projects throughout Spain.
