All of our fundraisers for 2020 were either cancelled or postponed.  We need your help now more than ever in order to continue with our support services.  Please consider making a DONATION. Any amount is greatly appreciated.  Thank you!

We can all help by following the recommendations (both the new ones and those issued previously) issued by the Swiss Federal Office of Public Health on how to protect yourself and others :

• Keep your distance – for example: Protect elderly people by keeping adequate distance from them; keep your distance when queuing or waiting in line; keep your distance at meetings.
• Wash your hands thoroughly.
• Avoid shaking hands.
• Cough and sneeze into a tissue or the crook of your arm.
• If you have a fever and are coughing, stay at home.
• Only go to the doctor or A&E once you have notified them by phone.

Full details can be found here. Please check back regularly for updates. The Swiss Federal Office for Public Health also regularly updates general information on the outbreak of COVID-19; details can be found here.
ESCA CS will provide specific statements for larger gatherings such as the Paddle for CancerSupport Festival as required by unfolding events.
