Nobody chooses to get cancer and it isn’t a pleasant experience. But it can be much less unpleasant if you get the help and support you need.

In most EU countries, we get first class medical care and for us as officials, the Sickness Insurance picks up the bill but often some extra help is welcome particularly for those people whose family is not on the spot.

Our aim is to provide this extra support for colleagues and their families who are facing cancer whenever it is needed – perhaps to cope with the shock of the diagnosis or while undergoing treatment, coming back to work or taking invalidity.
