EUROPA DONNA speaks at European Parliament roundtable

Added: Tuesday 18 February 2014

The European Breast Cancer Coalition EUROPA DONNA spoke last week at a roundtable event in the European Parliament. The meeting was organised by three MEPs on the subject of advanced breast cancer (ABC) and metastatic breast cancer (MBC). EUROPA DONNA asked the MEPs present for a formal pledge (to be written after the May elections) that patients with ABC and MBC will be treated in specialist breast units with the support of multidiscipinary teams. EUROPA DONNA is also asking for better collection and sharing of breast cancer data across member states.
