AGIGMA ZOIS
CANCER? And now what?

AGIGMA ZOIS (TOUCH OF LIFE) was created by the need for action when it comes to the problems that cancer patients and their familiar environment have to handle .

AGIGMA ZOIS is an Urban Non Profit Social Care Organization that is part of the National Register of the Non Profit Private Sector , which provides social cares services. AGIGMA ZOIS is also part of the Special Register of Voluntary Non-Governmental Organizations.

Our goal is the support of oncology patients and their familiar environment.

Our dream is informing and sensitizing the public, but also providing the best possible care, with our ultimate goal being the social prosperity of oncology patients and their families.

Since the health care is being affected crucially, depriving several times from the citizens the non detectible right to equal access to the national health system, health care and support, AGIGMA ZOIS materializes actions that fill these gaps and needs.

Our concern is ,with the aid of appropriate care and specialized services,  to aid the patients, to walk through with them and to make their everyday life easier, to avoid social exclusion, to reduce the expenses that the families are burdened with and finally to restore, as much as possible, the household balances of the patients.

AGIGMA ZOIS seeks to cover the issue of information and prevention in a two-way direction : informing the population on issues about cancer, the significance of early diagnosis, but also the sublimation of treatment methods and their spectacular results, in order to provide knowledge and preparation to everyone.
