ATHENS — President Katerina Sakellaropoulou visited the Children's Oncology Unit 'Marianna V. Vardinoyannis-ELPIDA', to mark International Childhood Cancer Day on Monday.

She was welcomed by Vardinoyannis, founder and president of the eponymous foundation and of the Elpida Friends Association, as well as by the directors of 'Aglaia Kyriakou' and 'Aghia Sofia' children’s hospitals.
