Our Story

In 2014, Fernanda Candeias was watching a television program that showed the pain of a girl who was diagnosed with 6 head tumors. She was especially saddened by the hair loss. Touched by the story, Fernanda created a cancer doll, with wig, hat and a healthy aspect. Shortly after, she developed the heart, the kidney and the cleft palate lip dolls. The purpose of these therapeutic dolls is to create an important identification factor to improve children's self-esteem, being an element to the humanization of the treatment, contributing to the chances of treatment success.

What We do

We make therapeutic tissue dolls to contribute to the humanization of children's treatment against severe diseases: cancer, heart, kidney and cleft palate lip. All dolls are donated to hospitals and medical institutions, which are responsible to give them to children. The dolls are produced by a brilliant team of volunteers engaged in our cause.
