The Manifesto of the Association

“I have fought all my life to defeat the breast cancer of women, now I leave it to you, brave dragonflies, the fundamental task of erasing the memory from their minds”.

Professor Umberto Veronesi

Every woman who has gone through this experience knows that the worst comes after the surgery. Subsequent therapies put a strain on femininity, the worm grows in the mind that life has changed forever. The worst difficulty remains the checks that must be carried out periodically. Reference points are lacking, waits are often long and cause anxiety and fear.

Dragonflies Association starts from these considerations and flies high! Wants transform the lives of women who have encountered the diseasethanks to a physical and psychological space where anxieties, fear and stress are replaced by positivity, security, solidarity and maximum professionalism.

A place to meet, as friends knowing that they are always taken by the hand and accompanied, no longer alone, on a journey towards a life that has nothing to envy to the past one.

Twice a year a “tailor-made” follow-up will be organized: half a day, results immediately, a moment of relaxation to sip a cup of tea with a slice of homemade cake … There is no shortage of specialist contributions with the psychologist, the plastic surgeon, the gynecologist, or the dentist. As in all self-respecting clubs, there will be no shortage moments of leisure: a session of yoga to release tensions, a meeting with a cook to start a new line-saving and health food style, a session of make up.
