The Council passes on to Agamama its commitment to greater coordination for the benefit of women with breast cancer in Cadiz

Cadiz, 25 Sept. (EUROPE PRESS) –

The delegate of the Government of the Junta of Cadiz, Mercedes Colombo, and the territorial delegate of Health and Consumers, Eva Pajares, visited the headquarters of Agamama, an association that since 1999 has offered complete physical, psychological and socio-working assistance to the group of women affected by breast cancer and their relatives in the province of Cadiz.

Colombo and Pajares have shown their full collaboration with the leaders of the association, proposing to find the necessary modalities for greater coordination between the health system and the community “for the benefit of women suffering from this disease and its consequences”, they agreed to emphasize both.

The delegates had a meeting with the president and coordinator of the organization, respectively Agustina Castañeda, and María Paz Ríos, who made their work known; Agamama, which belongs to the Spanish Federation of Breast Cancer (Fecma), has physiotherapy and psychology units since 2007 and is also a reference in Cadiz in terms of prevention and rehabilitation of lymphedema.

They then had the opportunity to get to know the Physiotherapy Unit at the headquarters, located in the capital Cadiz, which takes care of 25 women with lymphedema, which means between 600 and 700 treatments per year.

Likewise, they learned of Agamama’s initiatives such as ‘Space of Confidence’, presented last May at the Puerta del Mar University Hospital in Cadiz, a virtual space with the personal experience of women who have had or are suffering from cancer at the otherwise; professionals who resolve doubts; image care; and stories of people who have accompanied women with breast cancer.

They also have the “Alborear abrazos solidarios” project, the association’s solidarity brand, in which they integrate high quality products and promote hiring, since one of the entity’s objectives is to improve employability through specific training and market orientation of women with this disease.
