FirstMed and Csodalámpa (Magic Lamp) Foundation made terminally ill children’s wishes come true
In the summer of 2012, FirstMed collected HUF 786 000 on behalf of Csodalámpa Foundation. The Foundation’s goal is to provide children suffering from terminal illnesses with memorable experiences by fulfilling their wishes.
As part of the promotion, FirstMed offered discounted prices on three of its preventive medical exams during the months of July and August in 2012, and donated a portion of the proceeds to Csodalámpa Foundation. In this way, the clinic’s clients were provided with incentive to protect their health by using preventive care services at the clinic, while a portion of the discounted fees they paid was used to make sick children’s wishes come true.
Five children’s wishes have been realized with the HUF 786 000 that was collected
during the summer campaign. That of
and FirstMed further supported the Foundation’s work by printing 600 promotional bags.
FirstMed employees personally presented some of the gifts to the little patients.
FirstMed is proud to support the work of Csodalámpa Foundation, which has fulfilled wishes for nearly 2000 children since 2003.

Go, Zsu, Go!
This year we decided to help a Hungarian Olympic swimmer, Zsuzsanna Jakabos – to her friends just Zsu – in her training for the 2012 Olympics.
Zsuzsanna was mostly known as a medley swimmer, but she recently decided to concentrate all efforts in her best discipline, butterfly. The Pécs-born Jakabos already won a gold medal in the event at the European Short Track Championships, she placed sixth at this summer’s World Championships so she will certainly be a contender in London next year.
Follow the continuous updates of Zsuzsanna on our Facebook page as she gets ready to become one of the medalists of the Hungarian delegation. In order to win she needs to find about a second over the 200 meter course, so it should be an exciting ten months filled with a lot of hard work.
