Limfomas pacientu atbalsta organizācija (Latvia)

Scope of organisation



The Oncological Patient Support Association “Tree of Life”(Dzivibas Koks) is tirelessly reiterating that life continues after cancer! It is different and often radically contrasting as values, perceptions of life, goals and priorities change. “Tree of Life” promotes mutual support when needed (psychosocial rehabilitation program “Power Source”, support groups, mentor movement), as well as provides information and cooperation with specialists and public organizations to jointly improve the health and social security system in the country.
