-The LILT of Lecce

The LILT (Lega Italian Lotta ai Tumori) is an association of cancer doctors, patients and former patients. Its provincial chapter of Lecce is especially active, putting in place a vast range of activities from high-level cancer care both in hospitals and at home, to awareness spreading, fundraising and even investigating the environmental causes of cancer, for example through an analysis of pollution levels in the soil of one of Italy’s worst “clusters” of high cancer rates and mortality.
