Treat for these brave kids who beat cancer

A GROUP of 60 children, who have recently overcome various forms of cancer, have enjoyed a few days at Camping Nauta, in Arona.

They were there, courtesy of the Pequeño Valiente Association,  which is backed by the local Town Hall and the Canarian Government, as well as the Tenerife and Gran Canaria Cabildos.

This National Camp, for children with cancer, is celebrating its first trip to the South of Tenerife. Last year, the initial event was held in Gran Canaria.

It is open to children from all over Spain, although most are from the Archipelago, and they are treated to a few days of fun, as well as visiting places of interest.

José Jerez, the Pequeño Valiente Association President, thanked Arona Town Hall, and said: “All the participants in this camp, which is free, are brave little people who have overcome cancer.” He also praised the quality of the campsite’s facilities and said they would again “celebrate this activity next year with more children”.

Jerez added that the children were “all champions, who teach us that overcoming cancer is possible”.

Arona Mayor José Julián Mena, said: “Talking about cancer, especially when it affects children, is a topic that affects us deeply.”

He added: “Initiatives like the Pequeño Valiente one “are not only positive, but they send a very important message to society.”
