One out of three persons will get cancer in a certain period of his or her life. In the Netherlands this means 95.000 persons a year. We expect that this amount will only increase. Every year more than 15.000 persons come to VUmc CCA for diagnosis, treatment or a second opinion.
Vumc CCA wants to prevent and cure cancer. We want less people to die from cancer and we want people with cancer to live longer. To do so, innovative research is needed, especially for:
- early diagnosis of cancer
- personalized medicine
- and better quality of life
We want to increase the life expectancy and quality of life of people with cancer. It is our mission to force a breakthrough by developing innovative treatments. To do so, research is crucial.
To do our research, a lot of money is needed.
So please support our innovative research!
