The RUNNINGSerbia team will run for BELhospice at the 35th Belgrade Marathon, for the sixth time in total.
This year we will run for pediatric oncology patients.
We invite you to join our team either by running with us at the Belgrade Marathon on May 15 or simply by helping our runners finish their races with your donations.
Our goal is to raise enough funds to buy a VEHICLE with which the BELhospice team could efficiently visit their little patients on the field and thus also help their parents. HOSPICE IN THE HOUSE FOR CHILDREN is a project that aims to provide, in cooperation with the relevant healthcare and social welfare institutions, the possibility of reducing the separation of children diagnosed with incurable diseases from their families. BELhospice provides free palliative care services to oncology patients of all ages and their families. BELhospice team is composed of professional staff: three doctors, four nurses, one psychologist, two social workers and two caregivers and is the first specialized charity organization in Serbia that since 2004 provides free palliative care to patients with active, progressive, advanced disease for which the prognosis is limited.
Palliative care is an approach that improves the quality of life of patients and their families, by tackling the problems that accompany life-threatening diseases by means of prevention and elimination of suffering through early detection and unmistakable assessment and treatment of pain and other problems: physical, psychosocial and spiritual. BELhospice provides comprehensive support and specialized care to oncology patients in the advanced stages of the disease and their family members; BELhospice is committed to the development of palliative care at the national and regional levels through the education of professionals and the public, as well as consultation and cooperation with relevant institutions in order to improve legislation.
By supporting BELhospice since 2014, we firmly stand by the conviction that palliative care is a human right. We also support the vision of BELhospice that all oncology patients in Serbia, in the advanced stages of the disease, should have access to adequate palliative care in order to reduce their suffering and preserve their dignity.
