Innovación social

We are an innovation studio that develops solutions to improve the lives of children and adults with cancer.

History

Some time ago, Yuri came into our lives by changing them forever. With only 5 years and an unpromising diagnosis – Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in an advanced and irreversible state – she could give a new sense to our days.

Her struggle, her desire to live, all her smiles still live with us. Her legacy was truly inspiring, and it was the best gift we could receive to go the way without her.

Now we embark on the mission of contributing our talent to work in the fight against cancer. We want all children to have a life as normal as possible, without feeling the burden of illness. We dream of seeing them smile always.

We see in each child the possibility of a better future; we see in them the same desire to live as our daughter. We admire their struggle, and we are inspired by them to carry out every project we undertake.

About us

We are an innovation studio dedicated to solving problems associated with cancer that patients, their families and social environment experience, and involves foundations, institutions, companies, and brands committed to making their contribution to the reality of this disease.

We are designers, advertisers, researchers, engineers, psychologists, technologists and developers from different parts of the world, who saw in Yuri’s story the opportunity to help people with cancer. We believe in collaborative work environments. We create teams “on demand” combining diversity of talents for the Design Thinking methodology.

We know that the only way to achieve our goals is to work on what we love and inspire us, we will always see that every effort has its reward, and ours will be to get that idea, product or campaign that helps to impact their lives positively.

We like to create projects that transcend indifference, which awaken you in the desire to participate, to move you; that leads us to new social solutions, to new ways of being and to live better.

Finally, it is good ideas that move and change the world.

Cancer

When we start children’s cancer initiatives, our purpose is to identify the needs of children, seeking to improve their physical and emotional quality of life throughout the illness. To achieve this, we create sustainable software and systems solutions, working at the point where technology, psycho-oncology, and cancer converge.

All of our children’s cancer projects are free for kids, adolescents and their parents in Latin America. We invite you to know our projects and to be part of our team of volunteers, who contribute their talent to the cause, join us!

Figures

Each year more than 250,000 children worldwide are diagnosed with cancer.


0%

80% of children with cancer around the world are in underdeveloped countries.

All the children diagnosed with cancer face a wide spectrum of emotions: low self-esteem, stress, fear, anger, loneliness, depression or anxiety.

Purpose

Our goal is to help children lead a life as normal as possible, as it was before the illness. We want them to smile again, to dream again!

We know their reality closely, we follow each battle they give and how devastating their diagnoses are. We believe that no child in any part of the world should face this disease. Our purpose is to return the magic and innocence to their lives.

At Hope Makers we work to identify the needs of children and adolescents with cancer and their families to design and develop innovative projects that seek to improve their emotional and physical conditions throughout the illness.

We are sure that with our contribution many children will have a better way of facing the disease and will be prepared for survival.
