The European Week against Cancer runs from 25 – 31 May

Every year during the last week of May, the European Week against cancer is organised to raise awareness around cancer and increase support for the fight against cancer. One of the key initiatives the European Commission is working on in this area is the Europe’s Beating Cancer plan, of which the final version is expected to be published by the end of the year.
