Keep a breast Europe is an association which aims to aware young people of the importance of adopting a healthy and responsible lifestyle for their long-term well-being and in particular to help women reduce their risk of breast cancer (prevention, early detection, support, etc.).
Les étoiles filantes was founded in 2019 by Sandie & Alexandre, when they discover that their 5 years old son Arthur has an infiltrative glioma of the brainstem. Affecting mainly children from 5 to 10 years old, these diffuse and infiltrating tumors are currently inoperable and there is no effective treatment. Les Etoiles Filantes aims to:
- Fulfill the dreams of children with brainstem tumors.
- Bring human, material and financial assistance to the families of sick children.
- Help research on the infiltrating glioma of the brainstem.
Successful challenge! Congratulations to the 24 female teams who shone on each challenges and who illuminated the Vercors with their smiles and happiness.
