Fondazione Maruzza Lefebvre D’Ovidio Onlus


Everyone has a right to the best quality of life possible.
Everyone deserves to be cared for, even if a cure is not possible.
What do we want?
We want to improve the knowledge and the culture of palliative care.

We want that everyone, including children and elderly persons, has a right to dignity and respect, and that their needs, not their illness, is the focus of care.

We want to ensure that every child has a playroom and a birthday party with playmates. We want that every mother and father have a life outside of their child’s illness.
