After an absence of almost 10 years, I return to the board of the ECPC, where I began my conscious journey as a patient advocate and consultant, as a navigator of cancer patients, and a public figure. I can now bring back my experience gained nationally and continue to work to expand the framework for caring for cancer patients in Europe.
My university is my experience – both in life and in my work. For 17 years I have maintained the delicate balance between the patient’s personal needs, the public interest, and political will. The sustained changes we have achieved are proof of the strength and impartiality of the patient’s voice. We continue!
I am a Breast Cancer Survivor 23 years ago. At the end of my personal patient`s journey, Cancer turned out to be the area where I feel most complete. Probably because patients need above all understanding, human empathy, and commitment to their problems to find together the right solutions. Changing the policies is child’s play compared to staying available to the patient and his family all the way. I believe in human values and their power to improve the world in which we live, getting sick, and find healing.
