08 January 2020 | The Fight Against Cancer! - Discussion with Dr. Matti Aapro
Did you know that almost one out of two Europeans will suffer from cancer? Were you aware that your chances of recovery and the quality of the treatment depend on the place where you live in Europe? We cannot keep it like this!
Together, we have already succeeded in eradicating devastating diseases. Why shouldn’t we win the fight against cancer? In today's online discussion, Dr. Matti Aapro, President of the European Cancer Organisation (ECCO), and I, we had the opportunity to give an answer to this question and to talk to many Europeans about this pressing issue.
In order for Europe to win the fight against cancer, we must join forces: We need to connect and expand our knowledge and research, and apply it in the best possible way everywhere. We need the fight against cancer to remain at the top of the EU‘s agenda! This is the only way we can realise our European master plan against cancer and the only way we can succeed in this regard. On 04 February 2020 - World Cancer Day - the starting shot is fired!
