Totus Tuus is a non-profit organization that has provided medical and palliative care since 2005 to impoverished children struggling with cancer and other chronic life-threatening conditions in Colombia. Totus Tuus is a tax-exempt 501c3 organization under the Internal Revenue Service Code of the United States.

Our mission is to continue improving the quality of life for each child under our care, and to offer them practical gestures of love in order that they may be comforted while undergoing and/or overcoming their health struggles. The children are under our care for either a limited time until their illness is treated, or permanently as a result of being abandoned by their parents due to economic difficulties. The dignity of each child is important to us as we provide care, whether their condition is temporary or terminal.

Totus Tuus Secular Association consists of, and was formed by a group of people whose function is directed to promote love, compassion and charity in order to serve those who are in most need, especially sick children. This charity work is carried out in a spirit of service, generosity and empathy, which is centered on perfecting our way to love others by alleviating their suffering.

As children of God, we are called to alleviate another’s misfortune. Inspired by the spirit of love, we are taking an active role in providing health care to many children struggling with cancer and other terminal illness in Colombia and eventually in other poor countries.

Presently, our staff includes doctors, psychologist-social workers, support members, chaplain service, nutritionists and 24 hour nursing care. Our facilities include a healing house and a comprehensive care facility.


Your monthly pledge of $20 or more would help us to give hope to children stricken with cancer and other deadly diseases. As a monthly electronic giver, you will be among the most dedicated supporters.

Cancer is one of the leading causes of death in the world,
particularly in developing countries.

Cancer is a leading cause of death worldwide and the total number of cases globally is increasing. The number of global cancer deaths is projected to
increase 45% from 2007 to 2030 (from 7.9 million to 11.5 million deaths)
