Thanks to all the volunteers for having participated in the XV Meeting of Volunteering in the Oncology field!

The yearly Oncology Volunteering Meeting organized by the Catalan Federation of Organisations Against Cancer (FECEC) was held on 16 November on its 15th anniversary.

IMG_20191116_114404

In this very special edition, the day was devoted to "Volunteering, a way of understanding life" since we believe that volunteers have an attitude towards life that goes beyond the duration of their volunteering activities and that it is important to focus on this trait.

The event was conducted by Ignasi Gaya, a journalist working for Televisió de Catalunya’s News Services. At ten o'clock in the morning, there was a welcome speech by Dr. Ramón Maria Miralles, FECEC’s President and by representatives of the Employment, Social Affairs & Families ministries of the Catalonian Government, Barcelona Provincial Council and the Barcelona City Council as well.

Throughout the day, there were various talks and colloquiums. One of them was "The happiness of giving to others and to oneself' conducted by Dr. Jose Luís Bimbela, Doctor in Psychology, Professor, Researcher and Consultant at the Andalusian School of Public Health.

Later, two simultaneous workshops titled ‘Sound & silence as well-being tools' and 'Listen from the depths' took place.

The first was delivered by Edgar Tarrés, specializing in the creation of experiences and the second by Dr. Maria Rufino, Doctor in Psychology of Human Learning at the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

At the end of the meeting, we had a small event celebrating our 15th anniversary!

We were very happy at FECEC to be able to celebrate such a landmark all together. During these years, we have been able to maintain this space to promote the link between all the volunteers who collaborate in this area of Catalonia and to recognize and thank their solidary work.

It is for this reason that we wish to thank all the volunteers of FECEC member entities for having participated in the XV Meeting!

Date: 17 de September de 2019
  • SECAPC’s VIII edition held Sep27 - Oct 6 consolidates.
  • “Eating healthy is not a sacrifice and it is within everyone’s reach” is #menjasaimoute19’s campaign message

Watch the 2019 ad #menjasaimoute:

The month of October marks the return of the Catalan Week for Cancer Prevention (SECAPC), which is organized every year by the Catalan Federation of Organisations Against Cancer (Federació Catalana d'Entitats contra el Càncer).

In its eighth edition, the campaign has consolidated throughout Catalonia in the effort towards cancer prevention and awareness. More than 20 activities are organized in 23 municipalities and 10 schools across Catalonia on behalf of the #menjasaimoute19 campaign promoting healthy lifestyles among the population.

This year, under the slogan ‘Eat healthy and move', FECEC emphasizes the fact that eating healthy does not have to be a sacrifice and that it is within everyone’s reach in addition to reiterating the message about the need to adopt a healthy lifestyle.

FECEC’s campaign is based on the recommendations of the World Health Organization’s (WHO) International Agency for Research on Cancer and contemplated in the European Code against cancer, which states that 50% of cancers can be prevented by following healthy habits, such as eating a diet rich in fruit and vegetables, engaging in regular physical activity, walking for 30 minutes a day, and avoiding the consumption of tobacco or alcohol.

This routine must be followed by other measures such as following screening and vaccination programs, avoiding excessive sun exposure as well as to carcinogenic substances and living in a smoke-free space.

In fact, the campaign also serves to disseminate the European Code against cancer, which provides 12 tips to reduce the risk of malaria, and stresses the importance of food and physical activity.

Children's workshops and shows

Besides the #menjasaimoute19 campaign, SECAPC's activities include more than 20 healthy menus workshops and the 'l'Hort d'en Marçal' show.

The workshops, aimed at an audience of all ages, aims to offer resources to implement basic food recommendations for a healthy and balanced diet. This activity is conducted by dietitians and nutritionists.

The children's puppet show 'Hort d'en Marçal', intended for children between 5-7 and performed in more than 10 municipalities, explains the properties of fruit and vegetables through puppets and includes a workshop on how to make a fruit brochette.

Fecec will continue to advance to overcome challenges after cancer


Date: 11 de April de 2019
In Catalonia, more than 36,500 new cases of cancer were diagnosed in 2017 according to the latest data collected by the Oncology Master Plan: 20,759 men and 15,782 women. In addition, 17,156 people died: 10,394 men and 6,762 women. Despite this data, cancer survival rates grow year after year and the percentage of patients surviving after five years is 54% in men and 62.5% in women. GRUPO ok However, these people face new difficulties after cancer: physical, psychological or emotional consequences due to treatment, difficulties in the social, labor, economic and financial fields and lack of knowledge of rights and procedures that do not help to resume their lives after cancer. That is why the Catalan Federation of Organizations against Cancer (FECEC) organized, on April 6, 'Celebrate life after cancer', an initiative to give a voice to people who have overcome cancer, to help make their needs visible and raise awareness among society of the difficulties faced by people after cancer. Through talks, conferences, discussion panels of experts and testimonies and various activities, this reality has been made visible by combining fun, learning and sensitization. There is little awareness of the difficulties of resuming life after overcoming the disease. In other words, there is a lack of knowledge of rights and procedures that are not covered after the remission of the disease. FECEC’s 'After cancer' program This seminar is part of the 'After cancer' program developed by FECEC since 2015. First, with the two studies to detect needs: 'Study for the improvement of the integration and reincorporation of women who have had breast cancer 'and the study to' Improving the Experience of Cancer Survivors in Catalonia'. And, second, offering services such as the 'After cancer' portal, with resources and information directed only to people who have overcome the disease and in the workplace, by offering the service 'Resume, Labor Orientation after Cancer' and the pilot test 'What to do when cancer appears at work' to improve the return to work.

The sponsors of this fifth edition were journalists Elisenda Carod and Silvia Tarragona, meteorologist Tomàs Molina, Dr. Germà Lluch, researcher Manel Esteller and baker Daniel Jordà.

Volunteers and many other people wanted to extend the call through social networks by sharing photos and videos with their bags of peppers with the hashtags #pebrotscancer and #sumaT and posting them on Condis’ (@ condislife) and FECEC’s (@fececfederacio) Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts. Celebrities such as actors Queco Novell and Carlos Latre also joined the campaign through social media.

Condis also promotes solidarity among its staff and collaborators, who participate from the point of sale and from the central platform.

According to Carme Condal, executive vice-president of Condis, "for us, helping cancer patients and their relatives is a meaningful gesture. It makes us very happy to know that once again, we have surpassed the number of charity peppers bags sold. That is why we would like to thank all the volunteers who have made this campaign possible another year and also, to sponsors and collaborators of Condis for their willingness and sincere dedication to this cause."

In the words of Núria Casaldàliga, a member of the FECEC Board of Directors and director of Oncolliga, "we have been carrying out this campaign for 4 years and vindicating the need for such initiatives to help spread the work that we carry out from FECEC entities. If we work together to improve the quality of life of patients and support their families we will achieve better results without a doubt."

On this occasion, the campaign was endorsed by journalist Xantal Llavina, actor and presenter Quim Masferrer, researcher Manel Esteller, Dr. Germà Lluch, actors Francesc Orella, Candela Anton, Pau Poch and Abel Folk and chef Sergi Cócera. Sergi Cócera prepared two solidarity recipes with peppers with the help of the actors during the presentation of the campaign.
