Perez Reyes, who has a master degree on Childrens Integral Attention and who works as an oncologist at the Martires de las Tunas Paediatric Hospital in the eastern Cuban province of Las Tunas, gave details of their work to treat cancer and the results they have obtained with the therapeutic treatment of this disease among children.
