Who we are

Created in 1992 by Martine Vaccarezza, Mado Petit, Thérèse Mencaraglia and Philippe Ballério, under the Honorary Presidency of H.S.H. Princess Stéphanie, the Association Ecoute Cancer Réconfort has set itself the following goal :

“To provide help and comfort to individuals who have suffered or are suffering from cancer, using the most adapted and appropriate measures.”

We strive to achieve this goal by:

  • Listening to patients staying at the day hospital of the Princess Grace Hospital, via a team of support volunteers,
  • A warm and friendly community life:

Since 2009 the association opened a community centre”l’Espace Mieux-Etre” dedicated to the well-being of cancer sufferers- a warm and welcoming environment where they can meet others, receive support and enjoy various activities, enabling them to regain energy, cope with the disease and escape from isolation. The centre does not provide medical care but is a place where visitors can meet others, share experiences and enjoy a chat. The centre provides socio-aesthetic services, nutritional advice, a relaxation area, social support…

Outings to the countryside to enjoy a walk and to unwind,
periodic activities to help combat cancer, information sessions geared towards the general public.

Discover our Espace Mieux-Être

By making a donation, you will help the Association to provide a listening ear to patients and to purchase high-technology equipment in order to continue to improve their comfort.


Atelier floral

Un atelier d’art floral a eu lieu à l’Espace Mieux-Etre où une très belle réalisation a été créee par Cinzia Cicollela du Garden Club.

Elle a réalisé gracieusement un centre de table avec des roses et des citrons ainsi qu’un bouquet champêtre avec des fleurs et des légumes dans un socle en pain. Cette animation a été très appréciée par les patientes.

Become a volonteer

Volunteering is a commitment, a well-thought-out decision, a desire which matures deep within you, and which one day takes on a special meaning. (more…)

Annual fee

The Association’s activities are many - to listen and to help cancer patients and their families in particular. We need dedicated members and volunteers to provide them with all the comfort necessary.

A healing weekend took place from June 17th to June19th in Saint Dalmas de Tende on Self-esteem and Self-welcoming. Through out sensorial movements and therapy dance of the 5 elements, Fabienne LEDUC made our body travel to bring awareness and wellbeing. These postures anchored in the present and self-presence resulted by joy and acceptance of ourselves, the faces lid up, the bodies let go and were relaxed. Participants regained their freedom, movement, and their creativity. A breath of fresh air in the everyday life allowed them to express themselves, exchange, motivate and link together.
