Façonnable welcomes the Indigo Association
During the Monte Carlo Master Tournament 2011
On Saturday, April 9th, Façonnable had the pleasure to welcome the Indigo Association at the VIP Village Façonnable stand for the special day of its kids at the Country Club. Façonnable created a special T-shirt for them, as a souvenir of their visit during the 2011 tournament. It was a joy having these great little guests at Façonnable.
Reiterating its unique role in the luxury menswear with its “modern-classic” signature, Façonnable continues to strengthen its presence within the tennis sport world, and its commitment supporting kids’ charities.
The INDIGO Association (law 1901) was created in 1993 with the aim of improving the quality of life and care of sick children and their families as well as the medical staff of the Hematotology and Oncology Cancer Ward Pediatric Department of Lenval’s Foundation and Nice’s CHU. The Association also participates in medical staff trainings.
Created by a team of doctors and nurses, the association gathers many members among families in need. Our patients, children and teenagers from 3 months to 18 years old, are treated for leukemia, cancer and HIV infections. These diseases demand heavy treatments (chemotherapy, radiotherapy, surgery), which can last from a few months to several years. They lead to constant hospitalizations and a regular follow-up in day hospitals.
INDIGO implements and subsidizes several leisure activities inside the hospital in order to help children and teenagers to pursue their intellectual and psychological development during their hospitalization.
