For the first time, the Research Project “Francesca‘s Cells” – a molecular characterisation of acute leukaemia – has been announced in this brochure distributed at the Treasure hunt “La Nave di Nana” on Serapo Beach, July 7th, 2018.

The third edition of La Nave di NAnA is now completed. Everyone was enthusiastically involved in fundraising for leukemia research, proving once again that La Nave di NAnA is a real family!
Enrolled: 101 children and young people
Funds collected: € 1492
