A disease which, in addition to its repercussions on the general state of health, is not without consequences on the psychological, family, professional sphere… Throughout the year, the action of the Avène Dermatological Laboratory allows patients to feel better about themselves with exchanges and information on the site and social networks, but also with soothing and repairing skin products, as well as a post-cancer cure at the Avène Thermal Center. In October, the brand’s support remained unwavering for medical research and support for patients and their families.
