“Fight Bladder Cancer” is a non-profit organization and the only charity in the UK dedicated to bladder cancer, founded and run by patients and carers affected by this type of cancer. The major objective of the association is to provide support to anyone in need who has been affected by bladder cancer, raise awareness on the causes and symptoms of this much-ignored type of disease to ensure the earliest possible diagnosis, as well as new treatments and better awareness at political level both in the UK and across the EU.
