On 20 September, our colleague, Sarah, is organising in Ispra the annual event to raise funds to go towards research into finding a cure for Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma. This is the event website: www.sempreconloro.org (Italian only for now). The event will be held in Ispra in collaboration with the JRC Triathlon Club “Oxygen”.
If you scroll down the first page of this website, you will find a link in the lower right hand corner “click to see video”, showing the devastating effects this rare brain tumour had on Sarah’s son, as well as his gradual recovery thanks to what was a successful clinical trial for him. This gives hope that researchers may be on the right path, but in order to continue their research, they need funding. For more info contact CANCER-SUPPORT@ec.europa.eu
NEW – Cancer Support Group has now a paypal account you can make your donations to CANCER-SUPPORT@ec.europa.eu.
