Congress supports historic claim to help children with cancer
Since having a sick child is a serious blow for the whole family, it should be given all possible facilities to face the new situation. In particular, children and their families would be entitled to a number of benefits if they were recognized by law as a 33% disability something that has already been unanimously approved as a non-legislative proposal. The Government should amend a Royal Decree to recognize this aid for children with cancer.
By recognizing children and adolescents (up to the age of 14 years) with cancer a 33% disability since the diagnosis is intended to minimize the consequences of the disease in the pockets of families. Why, what would these benefits mean for families? A relief in their economic situation, which is diminished by the expenses that often, cannot be allowed. Access to rehabilitation treatments not included in public health means to adapt housing, educational support or aid to travel.
All this from the moment the child is diagnosed of the disease, and not after a few months as in some communities: and this is another question incomprehensible, until now there is no homogenous rule throughout each community has its own and in some, the recognition of disability does not even exist.
In short, a decision that has been a great satisfaction for the Federation of Parents of Children with Cancer. This entity explains that families with children diagnosed with cancer have an average increase. A few days ago, we celebrated the World Day against Childhood Cancer and we remembered that a child with cancer is still a child.
We hope that these helps will soon allow them to be a little better. Each year, more than 150,000 new cases are diagnosed in children worldwide. In Spain there are 1,400 new cases in children under 18 years and sure that somehow the benefits can contribute to reinforce their rights as children.
We are glad that it has been unanimously decided to grant new aid to children with cancer and to be equally for all in the country. Let us hope that it will not be late to change the law and that it can be effective to alleviate the families that suffer this situation so painful.http://www.childinharmony.com/congress-supports-historic-claim-to-help-children-with-cancer.htmlhttp://www.childinharmony.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/children-with-cancer.jpghttp://www.childinharmony.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/children-with-cancer-150x150.jpgChild Carechildren with cancer,food and drug department,war on drugs
