Patient Survey Gives Essential Insights

Thanks to the patients who took part and shared their insights, we are now better equipped to support patients with metastatic Colorectal Cancer (mCRC) and help save more lives!

Digestive Cancers

Colorectal Cancer

Bowel cancer develops in the colon or the rectum.

Gastric Cancer

Malignant (cancer) cells form in the lining of the stomach.

Liver Cancer

Liver Cancer

Liver cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer deaths worldwide.

Pancreatic Cancer

Rare Cancers

More than 4.3 million people in the EU are affected by rare cancers.

March is European Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month – Join us and help spread the word!

Every year, 500,000 citizens in Europe are diagnosed with colorectal cancer (CRC) and 250,000 of them die. Patients who are diagnosed early (stage I), have a 90% chance of survival as compared to only 10% when diagnosed in stage IV.

Despite the fact that colorectal cancer evolves slowly, over a period of eight to ten years, the majority of patients are still diagnosed in the late stages III & IV. Help spread the word on CRC – how we can save lives and how we can support those who have to live with its consequences, much better!
