PEDIATRIC ONCOLOGY DAYS
For the first time in 2018, Krtek COEF participated in the Pediatric Oncology Days (POD) event. The symbol of POD is a golden ribbon. Proceeds from the sale go to support science and research for the treatment of childhood cancer.
In Western Europe, Pediatric Oncology Day is set by the International Society for Pediatric Malignancies (Société Internationale d´Oncologie Pédiatrique –SIOP) at 15 February, and in the United States, the entire month of September is dedicated to pediatric oncology each year.
The main goals of POD are to spread awareness of the problem of oncological diseases in children and young adults, to introduce advances in cancer treatment with an emphasis on personalized treatment, and to pay homage to pediatric patients and their families.
We appreciate the kind cooperation with the patient organization Together We Smile.
And who is behind this organization? “We are young people who are dealing with the minor or major consequences of oncological disease treatments we received during childhood or adolescence in our daily lives, but who, above all, try to look at the world in a positive way and tend to spread the hope of recovery further.“

Another kindred spirit of Krtek COEF is the Sun Drive Communications, s. r. o. company, thanks to which Krtek can do the almost impossible… Organizing POD in 2020 in cooperation with Sun Drive Communications is proof of that.
