Transforming Breast Cancer Together
The "Transforming Breast Cancer Together" initiative was established when influential policy makers and organizations strongly committed to cancer care began to collaborate following a poignant cancer care event on 8 November 2017, hosted by Elena Gentile (S&D) and Lieve Wierinck (ALDE), Members of the European Parliament (MEPs). The ultimate goal of this initiative is to reduce the societal impact of breast cancer by elevating it as a health policy priority in order to improve breast cancer prevention, diagnosis and care across Europe.
In 2018, the group successfully launched the concept of the ‘Strings of Pearls’, which represents all involved stakeholders’ commitment to contribute to at least one activity per month to raise awareness and improve breast cancer care in Europe.
