Astor is an association that works to guarantee the same opportunities for those with learning difficulties and to offer support for them and their families.
Over the last 15 years Cantabria Labs has collaborated in their occupational workshops. In this new chapter of “Cerca para llegar lejos” our protagonist, Beatriz, tells us about her daily life.
This is the story of Yago and Valeria, who got to know each other thanks to the psycho-oncology programme of the Fundación Aladina, which helps families and children overcome a cancer diagnosis.
Valeria started sessions with Yago, our ‘Aladino’ or volunteer, when she lost her sight due to a tumour several years ago and now he is just another member of the family.
