Associazione Insieme per Fily Onlus
The "Together for Fily" association was set up because we, the parents, wanted to continue what our son had started.
The main purpose of the association is to help children and teenagers suffering from tumors or other serious illnesses by putting a smile on their faces. The joy of giving emotions, respite or distraction to sick children, especially on cancer wards, is something indescribable. We want to give young patients something else to think about instead of spending hours looking at the drips and the chemotherapy trolleys.
It doesn't take much to change a young patient's day: a gift, a surprise or an unexpected gesture of kindness.
We want to help parents who are caring for children and suffering as they try to be strong for their loved ones.
We are Filippo's parents and we spent 14 months at the "Center for Tumors in Milan. We experienced a period that allowed us to touch suffering first hand. We understand the needs that both children and parents have at a time like that. We want share our experience to help others: if we can support parents who are suffering we'll be keeping Filippo's memory and smile alive.
The Association encourages community solidarity and carries out charitable activities and social and health assistance for children and teenagers affected by cancer or other serious illnesses, by bringing gifts, organizing trips, visits and leisure days for young patients and their parents.
