Every person in the Netherlands will at some stage have an experience with cancer When you have cancer, it disrupts your life, but also when someone you know has the disease. The consequences are overwhelming. To all those millions of lives, every day we can make the difference, successfully, for more than 71 years. We not only fight this disease, but we also strive for a better life living with cancer.
We work on life-changing research and make sure that expensive medicines are available quickly to everyone.
