The need for Cancer Patients Europe (CPE)
1. Lack of a Pan European Organisation across the European region with a balanced representation of cancer patients from all European countries
2. Growing need to bridge the European and the national dimensions
3. Only a transparent and credible organization can leverage the current prioritization of cancer care and treatment in Europe for the benefit of cancer patients
Vision and Mission

Represent and empower the voices of cancer patients and cancer survivors towards policymakers and other stakeholders, with the ultimate objective of co-creating policies that drive prevention, high-quality cancer care, treatment and survivorship in Europe.
