RESILIENCE helps you survive cancer with a strong heart

What is resilience? We talked about this issue with Almudena Cid and Julio García Mera

We have had the opportunity to talk about resilience with two great figures of Spanish sports, Almudena Cid and Julio García Mera. They have shared with us how resilience has allowed them to face the most difficult moments of their sports careers and how they have transferred that resilience to their daily life.

With this first video we launch a cycle of RESILIENCE talks in which people from different fields share with us what resilience means to them and their approaches to it. We hope these videos will be useful, both for those of us who are part of the RESILIENCE project, researchers, doctors, healthcare workers, patients, relatives of patients, etc., as well as for those people who are facing a complicated situation; so that they face it with resilience.
