The Pediatric Clinic is part of the Pediatric Center of the University Medical Center Mannheim. Apart from leukemia, brain tumors are among the most common types of cancer in children and youths. “With our donation, we would like to contribute to the treatment of pediatric carcinoma”, said Peter Körner when handing over the donation check. After all, success in this area cannot be achieved overnight, but requires patience and commitment.
