From the 11th of May, the Madeira Regional Nucleus of the Portuguese League Against Cancer will provide a Legal Support Service for patients, cancer survivors and their families.
In a press statement, the Madeira Regional Nucleus of the Portuguese League Against Cancer informs that this service is designed to provide information, advice and support in solving problems with legal relevance presented by patients, cancer survivors and their families, through the legal consultation and the preparation of legal opinions. This service is provided by Jurists/Lawyers, free of charge.

In addition to this individual support, this unit also seeks to intervene with public bodies, through the preparation of legal opinions, namely regarding the law to be applied to specific cases.
