The pink ribbon symbolises a sense of solidarity with women who have been afflicted with breast cancer. But ‘Pink Ribbon’ also stands for research and education about the disease. Weingut Leo HILLINGER has been supporting this cancer-aid programme for many years. As a ‘Pink Ribbon Partner’, the estate created their own ‘Secco Rosé Pink Ribbon Edition’. The fine fruit-forward sparkling wine bears the pink ribbon on the label, and part of sales proceeds go to the Austrian Cancer Assistance.

Herzkinder Österreich is the contact point for all non-medical concerns and issues. Immediately after the frightening diagnosis “Your child has heart disease”, the affected parents are at a loss. This news is a great shock. The parents feel helpless and overwhelmed. Despair, fear and feelings of guilt set in. At the association Herzkinder Österreich, parents of heart children can find support, advice and assistance, and can exchange experiences with other affected parents. For those seeking advice, they procure concrete, specific information, establish contacts, and listen to them when they want to pour out their hearts.
