The program in hospitals of the Real Madrid Foundation attends to minors admitted during long stays for oncological processes or transplants, in pediatrics. In the case of the Puerta de Hierro Hospital in Madrid, it is also developed in child and adolescent psychiatry. The program aims to maintain their link with sport, escape from their hospital situation and learn positive values of sport that can help them emotionally in their recovery, such as motivation to overcome, self-esteem, respect, teamwork or autonomy. The program has been developed for two decades in more than 12 hospitals in the Community of Madrid, in collaboration with the Ministry of Health and the medical staff of each hospital.
