Ana, which means ‘I’ in English, has been specifically named to encourage patients of childhood cancer celebrate their individuality irrespective of their physical appearance.

ANA aims to:

  1. Enhance the lives of paediatric cancer patients and their families.
  2. Ana seeks to raise awareness about the seven common warning signs of childhood cancer and highlight the importance of early detection.
