In 1994, from a diagnosis of childhood cancer, a family from the city of Natal, in Rio Grande do Norte, began a history of struggles and overcoming. They bet on treatment and traveled with Fernando Campos to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, where they received support and solidarity from the first Ronald McDonald House in the world.
It was from this personal drama and from the help received that the idea of founding in the capital of Potiguar an institution similar to the one they were welcomed, where children and adolescents in situation of social vulnerability are cared with dignity and hope of better days.
The physical space was donated by the maternal grandfather of Fernando and on July 11, 1995, the Child Support House with Cancer DurvalPaiva was founded. Since then, psychosocial work has been carried out aimed at oncological and hematological diseases.
Today, Casa DurvalPaiva appears as an instrument that supplies the state's disability, promoting well-being, quality of life and social inclusion through other projects carried out with the patients assisted by the institution and itscaregivers.
