2022 has been an eventful and turbulent year for European cancer patients. More than two years of the pandemic left its traces on cancer treatment, care, mental health and cancer research. The Ukraine war created an unprecedented humanitarian crisis and many cancer patients needed urgent support.
The WECAN community faced all those challenges and grabbed them by the horns. WECAN, the Workgroup of European Cancer Patient Advocacy Networks, undertook key programmes to strengthen the cancer patient community, engage in research, address key policy issues, generate evidence, and work with different healthcare stakeholders.
WECAN didn’t just talk, WECAN delivered.
