Questions to think about: 
  • Per què és important la tasca d'un laboratori de recerca?
  • Per què creus que l'Estela dedica el seu temps com a voluntària després de la mort del seu fill? 
Summary: 

Abans de la malaltia del seu fill Pol, l'Estela no havia sentit a parlar mai de laboratoris de recerca. Ara, després d'haver perdut el fill per un càncer, es dedica a organitzar tot tipus d'activitats solidàries encaminades a recollir fons per a la recerca en oncologia infantil. Des de vendre bufandes fetes per ella mateixa fins a organitzar amb tota la família, la Cursa de la Lluna Plena de Sitges, que mobilitza cada any molta gent en aquesta població. L'Estela afirma que, més enllà de la quantitat que s'aconsegueix, l'important és mobilitzar-se per col·laborar en la investigació.
