3rd EORTC Cancer Survivorship Summit
Everywhere in Europe the survival rate of cancer has improved. As of today, there are around 10 million European cancer survivors of which more than a third are of working age.
Although not being a death sentence anymore, cancer risks to remain a life sentence preventing survivors to resume normal life. Research shows a higher unemployment rate in cancer survivors as compared to the cancer-free population. Also, individual testimonies illustrate challenges in obtaining health/life insurance, loans and mortgage.
CANCER SURVIVORS SHOULD NOT PAY TWICE!
