ASSOCIAZIONE BIANCA GARAVAGLIA (ABG) was founded on April 28, 1987 and named after Bianca, a girl who at the age of 5 contracted a rare form of neoplasia. It was Bianca who, during the months spent at the Istituto Tumori di Milano, drew the green and fuchsia flower that immediately became synonymous with hope and the symbol of the association.
ABG was established by Bianca’s parents. Fully aware of the many difficulties faced when dealing with infantile tumors, they firmly believed that immediate and direct support to existing facilities was necessary.
ABG's goal is to collect funds to promote scientific studies and medical treatment in the field of infantile tumors, as well as to provide first-hand operational support to all related initiatives.
The association has been operating for over 25 years now, supporting the “Struttura Complessa di Pediatria” (Pediatric Complex Unit) of the “IRCCS Istituto Nazionale Tumori di Milano” Foundation, one of the major research and treatment centers in the field of infantile tumors, where small patients from all over Italy converge.
