Shaping European Policy on Youth Cancer

It’s about time that youth cancer patients have a greater voice at European level.

Youth Cancer Europe is made up of youth cancer organisations from across Europe. Together we can help shape European policy, collaborate in and promote research, fight for better access to care, for better treatments, better conditions and help fix disparities that exist across Europe for young people fighting cancer.

Youth Cancer Europe will highlight what can be achieved at local level, using good practice models to inspire countries where youth cancer movements are still being developed.
