Today, on the eve of World Cancer Day, the European Union will launch its ambitious Beating Cancer Plan, marking the beginning of a new era in cancer prevention and care.
Youth Cancer Europe and its community of young cancer patients and survivors, are proud to have been a key part of the conversation over the last year leading up to this event, advising the team at the European Commission through our own experiences about the needs and key issues affecting young people living with cancer across the continent, as laid out in our White Paper.
The plan will be announced as part of a live streamed event which will take place today, February 3rd, from 12:00 CET/Brussels time. You can follow it via the link here: https://audiovisual.ec.europa.eu/en/ebs/live/1
Here at Youth Cancer Europe, we will continue to work in close co-operation with key stakeholders as the all-important implementation phase of the Cancer Plan unfolds, to ensure that all cancer patients, survivors, their families and carers can enjoy a high quality of life, no matter where they live.
