«With my bicycle tour in our country, I want to demonstrate to those who are fighting cancer that it is possible to heal and that actions of this type can be carried out. My trip is also an opportunity to verify the progress made in therapies but also in the reception of patients and their families. In this sense, applause goes to the activities of the Aslti associations of Palermo and Ibiscus of Catania”, he says . Before arriving in Sicily, on his journey that began on April 27th, Gianfranco Gallo was in Calabria, then with his bike he will reach Sardinia and Corsica.

«We enthusiastically welcomed the testimony of a man who decided to make his story available to everyone – say Antonella Gugliuzza and Ilde Vulpetti, president and director of the Aslti operational area – for this reason we will have Gianfranco Gallo meet with the families of the patients currently being treated in the pediatric oncohaematology unit, with the aim of reinforcing the message of hope in recovery and the possibility of a return to a peaceful life. We will also have them visit our shelters which concretely represent the humanisation of assistance which is the mission of our association.”
