Shobokshi Investment donated 2.5 million CZK to support clinical research of children cancer Neuroblastoma
“Cancer of any type is an increasingly frequent disease at any age. The neuroblastoma which affects children under 15 years old is the most common cancer in childhood and we would like to help develop new methods of treatment and inform the population as the level of awareness among people is still low,” said company owner and honorary consul of the Czech Republic in Saudi Arabia Hussein Shobokshi.
The donation was handed over to Jan Starý MD and Tomáš Esckschlager MD who are involved in the research and have many years of experience in the treatment of cancer. Mrs. Vendula Svobodová attended the handover of the cheque with Kapka Naděje, endowment fund dedicated to children with blood disorder, and cancer research means the next hope of them.
“We decided to support this project not only because it is an important milestone in the treatment of children cancer, but also from our own experiences. My daughter suffered from this disease and you find out in a moment like this that health is really the most important thing in one’s life,” said finally Hussein Shobokshi.
