In June 2016, my mother died on the seventh floor of Vall d'Hebron Hospital, after being diagnosed with an osteosarcoma and spending her last two years walking those corridors, rooms, offices, operating rooms... trying treatments and going through all the states that a disease like this entails.

During the process we realised the importance of information and talking; how a conversation with a specialist could help uncover some unknowns; and how important it was to understand the process.  In short, to be able to know what was going on at any given moment. This gave him security and confidence, especially because his case was a very rare cancer, of which little is said, and which represents only between 1 and 2% of all types of cancer.

As a result of this process we discovered a "backstage" of which we know almost nothing and which seemed very important to us. Everything that happens between visits and treatments, all the daily effort of the professionals involved to achieve better therapies for these patients. Oncologists, researchers, nurses, surgeons, pathologists...all go to one and work in a coordinated way to give these patients alternatives. So, in appreciation of their work and to help other patients who may be going through what my mother went through, we decided to show everything that is not seen, that’s how the documentary Backstage. Let's talk about a sarcoma was born, after 2 years of work.

We have decided to launch this campaign to promote research on sarcomas carried out at the Vall d'Hebron Institute of Oncology (VHIO), so that other people suffering from this disease or those who will suffer from it can have access to more effective treatments that improve their quality of life.

Thank you very much for helping us to achieve this!

La Fundación VHIO promueve y desarrolla la investigación de excelencia para mejorar la prevención, el diagnóstico precoz y el tratamiento del cáncer.

Para alcanzar este objetivo, centra su estrategia en el desarrollo de innovadores programas de investigación en las áreas clínica, básica y traslacional, tomando como modelo los centros de investigación oncológica de referencia internacional.

La investigación clínica es el centro neurálgico de su actividad científica, que se convierte en fuerza motriz y línea de inspiración para el desarrollo de programas de investigación básica y de investigación traslacional. Este enfoque permite el acercamiento de los resultados de la investigación obtenidos en el laboratorio hacia el paciente de forma rápida y eficaz, fomentando la creación de conexiones entre las necesidades de médicos y enfermos con los programas de investigación básica.

Desde su creación y constitución, el VHIO ha tenido el apoyo de fondos privados y públicos. La iniciativa privada es una fuente de ingresos clave, ya sea mediante un apoyo competitivo o proyectos filantrópicos.

VHIO es un centro CERCA que está ubicado dentro del Campus Valle de Hebrón y que forma parte del consorcio Cancer Core Europe, que engloba los 6 centros de excelencia de investigación en cáncer de Europa.
