The Fundación Columbus was born in 2017 with the aim of facilitating the access of children with cancer or rare diseases to the most advanced and effective therapies, thus increasing their hope and improving their quality of life. We are conscious of the key role that innovation and new technologies play within the field of healthcare. In line with this vision, we accept the challenge of bringing these new technologies closer to those who most need them, providing our commitment and resources to promote social initiatives that help to ameliorate their quality of life, particularly in the area of oncology.
To achieve this, we have developed an ambitious project through which we help children access treatment with the most advanced techniques, like proton beam therapy type of radiotherapy that is less invasive in cerebral cancers, and that, at the moment is not available in any medical center in Spain.
Likewise, we work to promote and divulge culture and science in Spain, driving activities throughout the country that allow their approach to society at large.
We are a non-profit organization, inscribed in the Spanish ‘Registro de Fundaciones de competencia estatal,’ and registered under the number 1930.
The Foundation is a channel for those who are most in need to benefit from technological advances.
