OrigIn of Small

Small was established in December 2007 with the aim of making a modest contribution to the fight against childhood cancer, driven by our personal experience with our son, Pablo.

When confronted with a severe health issue, we placed our trust in the exceptional quality of the leading public hospitals, which possess state-of-the-art infrastructure and renowned doctors with international acclaim.

However, even with this understanding, our firsthand encounter with our son's illness revealed numerous small ways in which we could enhance the resources available to hospitals. Naturally, these institutions must prioritize their investments and are unable to address every desirable detail, some of which hold significant importance for the patients. In today's economic climate, this task is even more challenging.

Laura Lucaya and Nacho Mercadé

Our primary focus is on gathering private donations and establishing close collaborations with hospitals to extensively enhance pediatric oncology services.

We allocate the received donations to two types of projects:


These projects aim to enhance any aspect related to the medical treatment received by children, whether it involves quantitative or qualitative improvements.



These projects aim to improve the conditions of both children and their families within the hospital environment, where they spend long periods of time. The objective is to directly and positively impact their hospital experience.

How we work

The entire structure of Small is based on selfless collaboration, which means that 100% of the contributions are fully allocated to the projects.

  • We identify projects based on suggestions and needs from the medical team, as well as our own experiences and suggestions received from parents of children admitted to the service.
  • We select specific and tangible projects that, no matter how small, significantly impact the well-being of children with cancer during their hospital stay.
  • We coordinate the development of budgets for projects approved by the Board of Trustees.
  • We seek the necessary private funding.
  • We monitor and control budgets and coordinate project execution.
  • We keep our collaborators and friends informed about the progress of different projects and the status of Small through our website and social media.
  • We transparently report on the financial situation of Small, the funds received, and their detailed allocation.

El cáncer infantil

Key facts and background to understand the situation of this condition in Spain and Catalonia.

 It is the leading cause of disease-related mortality in children over 1 year of age.

Survival rate exceeds 79%, and although mortality from childhood tumors is decreasing, there is still a proportion of patients who do not respond to conventional treatments.

In Spain, the incidence of childhood cancer is 142 new cases per million children aged 0 to 15 years, resulting in over 900 new cases each year.

In Catalonia, we have approximately 200 new cases per year, and currently around 500 children are receiving treatment.
