Assistance and Reception
The Present Association of Support for Patients with Cancer - Padre Tiãozinho is an organization nongovernmental, nonprofit organization that welcomes patients in need of treatment for cancer from the cities of northern MG and southern Bahia. With its own headquarters in Montes Claros (MG), the institution welcomes and assists the needy people who seek the city of Montes Claros for the treatment of cancer.
Patients who are faced with the diagnosis of cancer find treatment. In addition to the difficult access to hospitals due to a shortage of vacancies and distance from the cities where they live, lack of shelter, money and emotional structure are barriers which make the disease even more aggressive. Humble families find themselves in a difficult situation facing the fight against cancer, which disrupts not only the patient but everyone around him.
In this sense, the Present Association acts to provide a dignified reception and better recovery of these patients, also aiding in the knowledge and defense of their rights.
Providing hosting and hosting goes far beyond delivering a place to shelter during treatment. It is a work of love, giving, solidarity and compassion for others.
Awareness raising projects
The institution also promotes information and awareness campaigns on the prevention and early diagnosis of cancer, so that society becomes aware of the promotion of Cheers.
