As an ovarian and breast cancer survivor I will try to make a difference within the cancer world. But the main goal is to defeat cancer, and to ensure that healthcare is as good as possible for all, despite cancer form, country, ethnicity, and social status. How can we change this? Work to get several member associations to ECPC that works together for this goal, through various campaigns in Europe, and give the patient representatives the best education to support their members, through webinars, tools, and through meetings.
