Why cancer patients in Spain are changing address to stay alive:
Almost half of all oncologists in Spain are reporting huge disparities between different regions in terms of patient access to the latest life-saving cancer treatments, spurring many patients to pack up and move (at least on paper).
Time is of the essence when it comes to cancer and stopping it in its tracks.
But in Spain, a country where bureaucratic holdups are part and parcel of daily life, the repercussions attached to slow public service delivery in the health sector can prove lethal for some.
Spain’s Society of Oncology (SEOM) has just released a study that highlights the huge disparity in waiting times for newly approved cancer medications between the country’s different autonomous communities.
The time frame from which a groundbreaking treatment is green lighted by Spain’s Ministry of Health to the moment it reaches a cancer patient in hospital varies between 5 to 17 months on average. Photo:AFP

There is also the chance for men to obtain vouchers for their own check-ups for Prostate Cancer and they may be collected at the same time for a donation of €10 but the bloods will take place in Calahonda by appointment.

Christmas Market and Dog Show in Nerja Dec 14th: A special fundraiser will be held in Nerja to support APA Nerja, Spain, an animal charity which cares for abandoned and ill-treated animals.
On December 14, a Christmas Market and Dog Show has been organised from 11am at Chiringuito Playazo on Playa Playazo, where attendees can meet dogs and visit stalls offering a host of festive products.
The wonderful event aims to raise money which is urgently needed to pay for vet bills and to keep dogs safe at the animal shelter whilst they wait for their forever homes. Many of the dogs which APA Nerja look after have sadly been abandoned or abused by their owners.
