About Us

The Asociación Femenil Vallartense A.C. was an early social assistance organization legally constituted in Puerto Vallarta (1970), with diverse programs of support for children and young people with cancer from low-income families.

How We Help

At CANICA Puerto Vallarta (Support Center for Children with Cancer), we provide help for these children and their families in different ways, one of the most important being the treatment for the child, which has to be done in the city of Guadalajara, requiring continuous transportation to that city.

The types of assistance we provide to these families are:

  • 50% discount on transportation to and from the city of Guadalajara.
  • Accommodation during their stay in Guadalajara.
  • Support so that the child can continue with his/her academic preparation.
  • Receipt of donations for special cases where prosthetic limbs or ocular prostheses are needed.
  • Help in kind for a more dignified life at home for the child and his family.
  • Organization of events among families to encourage coexistence and mutual support.
  • Educational support of the disease to children and their families.

Maybe one of the most difficult and painful experiences for any human being is to know that a loved one has been diagnosed with cancer, but the situation becomes even more difficult is when it a child is the one that has been diagnosed with this illness.

The main types of cancer that affect children are: leukemias, neuroblastomas, lynphomas, bone cancer, sarcomas, kidney and eye cancer, among others.

With this situation, there is much to do and with your help makeing a big difference in the lives of these children and their families.
