Ask to the doctor
The Ask the Doctor form is available to patients and families exclusively for questions regarding medical issues related to leukemia and other haematological malignancies.
Before submitting your question, please note the following:
- The Foundation cannot respond to individual requests for financial aid. The best way in which the Foundation can help all those who suffer from the disease is by providing aid to scientific research, hospitals and in the search for non-family donors for patients in need of a transplant who do not have a compatible donor in their family.
- The Foundation does not have facilities to attend patients. We will try to help answer your question but under no circumstances can we make personal visits to patients.
- The Foundation can provide medical information but no second opinions. A second opinion requires a comprehensive and updated report from the doctor treating the patient, and the ability to personally assess the patient and extend studies. Functions that the doctors of the Foundation can not perform. In addition, the majority of Autonomous Communities and some insurance companies have a second opinion service. You can find a list of the different web pages where it is possible to access this service in:
On the contrary, we can offer guidance on questions, procedures, specialized centers, systematic localization of non-family donors, as well as specific issues in the evolution of the clinical process or its treatment.
All required fields are marked in red.
