I’ll never forget your famous tiramisu…

Cancer Support Group is publishing a poignant memoir written by our colleague, Ana de Morais, to honour the memory of her daughter, Cristina, who left us way too early in 2015.

The book is a celebration of life, courage and dignity.

The funds collected will go to two Brussels-based charities, Les Amis de Bordet (http://www.amis-bordet.be/) and Cat Rescue (https://catrescue.be/)

Cristina’s cats

For the fundraising for rescued cats beautiful postcards and reproductions are available. Reproduction rights graciously offered by the French painter, Claire Bauzet, to whom we are grateful. More about Claire’s work  here https://www.artactif.com/claire-bauzet#.WTj8ehPfrIU

Books are available as hardcopy in English and French, to preorder please send a message to cancer-support@ec.europa.eu mentioning your name/address, the linguistic version you want and the number of copies. Please consider a donation of 12 euros/book which will allow us to cover the publication costs and making a donation to Les Amis de Bordet.

A Polish version is available on request.

A book launch event is taking place in Berlaymont Piazza on Monday, June 19, at lunchtime (from 12h30 to 14h30), and we are organising a cake sale.

You can support this action without buying a book, of course.

What is stress and what does it do to your body

What is stress and what does it do to your body

Almost one hundred colleagues met on February 9 at lunchtime to listen to Tom Meyers, Osteopathe and DeStress coach, and learn again something that everybody knows but somehow we never apply, or very rarely…

The future sounds stressed, with one in five people experiencing burnout by 2020 and a global bill of around 600 000 000 euros only related to unmanaged stress.

Give yourself time to reAset, give your body time to unwind and experience moments of peace and quietness. As it seems that the topic is really “hot” we’ll be back with some ideas of easy exercises to destress.


Have you attended the workshop? Your input is very valuable as it will help us define further activities, leave us a comment here or send an email to cancer-support@ec.europa.eu
