Over the past ten years, Mainova has supported the research of the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer with a total of around 250,000 euros. Apart from that, the regional energy supplier will continue its commitment. This was announced today by Mainova CEO Dr. Constantin H. Alsheimer during the symbolic handing-over of the donation at the foundation’s research house.

“My thanks go to all employees and volunteers of the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer for their high level of personal commitment. Their commitment to the children and families affected is encouraging and deserves our support. We provide this support in the form of an annual donation of 25,000 euros. As a regional company and reliable partner, we are helping our fellow men in need and assume social responsibility,” emphasised Dr. Alsheimer. During the appointment he also presented 200 Mainova comforter teddies to the affected children as little encouragers.

Dr. Jürgen Vogt, Chairman of the Board and co-founder of the Frankfurt Foundation for Children with Cancer, said: “Since the foundation was established more than 25 years ago, we have been pursuing one goal: to continuously promote research in the field of childhood and adolescent cancer which has helped to reduce the mortality rate in childhood cancers. This would not have been possible without the generous support of companies like Mainova. Against this background, I am very pleased about the continuation of our trustful cooperation.”

In Germany, more than 2,000 children and young people are diagnosed with cancer every year. Fortunately, children’s cancer research has made considerable progress in recent years. Today, about 80 percent of young patients can be cured. But, at the same time, this means that every fifth child still does not survive. “This is why our vision remains: all children suffering from cancer should have a chance for a cure – and a chance for a future without long-term consequences,” added Dr Vogt.
