In other words, it has shown its character as a community of solidarity ”.
The Magnificent Rector, Professor Maurizio Oliviero, highlighted the great validity and social usefulness of Aucc: “This extraordinary adventure started with one of our professors, Vittorio Menesini who, at the time, grasped the importance of voluntary associations, and since then something unique has been created; but thanks also go to Professor Caforio who leads the association with deep dedication “. The magnificent also reiterated “the power of research to fight cancer, a mission of the University and of the AUCC”.
President Tesei stressed the importance of the role of the AUCC in home care, in harmony with the regional health system, dedicated to strengthening local medicine.

For Vincenzo Monetti, sole director of VIM spa, a solidarity sponsor, there was “an important participation in an involving evening from many points of view, not only for the location, but also for the sensitivity it expressed. Many people, from institutions to citizens who have given impetus to the feeling of this Association, linked to a noble spirit. We need to promote many evenings like this one and, as a solidarity sponsor, we will be committed to supporting Aucc ”.
There is great satisfaction for the success of the event also by Professor Fausto Roila, full professor of Medical Oncology at the Department of Medicine and Surgery of the University of Perugia: “More and more funding is needed to support research and oncological assistance. In particular, home care is an AUCC excellence that operates in the area with decades of experience. The training of professionals who deal with palliative care is increasingly important, to whom a Master will be dedicated from next January 2023 which will lead to the training of a substantial number of doctors and nurses who will ensure increasingly appropriate levels of home care. Furthermore, in the short term, we intend to create a specialization school in Medicine and Palliative Care, for which, as a University, we will apply to the Ministry. All this to improve the needs of the cancer patient “.
