“Health” does not merely mean the absence of disease.
According to the definition by the WHO (World Health Organisation), “health” means “a state of complete physical, mental and social well-being”.
The “overall” care of the patient, especially of a child with cancer, should therefore incorporate medical interventions and healthcare, psychosocial and educational services, so that the disease event, and everything stemming from it, can be experienced as a defined period in one’s life. A difficult period, but a temporary one, which must not make the little one lose their desire to play, laugh, grow and learn.
Our method - ceramic therapy to be precise - works in this way. On the one hand, it acts on the “healthy” part of the child, to stop the disease from impeding development; on the other, it becomes concrete therapeutic support.
