Smiles and Magic

Fantasy is a medicine


Since 1995, the Theodora Foundation has been focusing on listening and create activities for hospitalized children and their families, thanks to the work of her Dr. Smiles.
DiaSorin supports these precious practitioners in their personal visits program to 35,000 little patients in 18 Italian health facilities, believing that emotional balance and physical well-being are deeply inseparable and equally important.

Dr. Smiles are highly specialized professionals who work in synergy with medical staff to help children develop the difficulties associated with long-term hospital stay.
Their medicines are empathy, fun, and smile: magic tools, able to make the imagination fly up high even between the walls of a clinic.

Our mission
Provide psychological and emotional support to children undergoing long hospital care.

The initiative

With its contribution to the Theodora Foundation, through participation in the Theodora pic-nic, an initiative aimed at fundraising and funding, DiaSorin helps Dr. Smiles to bring comfort and brightness to the lanes of 18 pediatric hospitals in Italy.
