I run 42km against cancer, do you support me?
I am running a full marathon(42km) against cancer on 19th April 2020. Together with KWF, I am collecting money for research on cancer.
There are more than 100 different types of cancer. Each type of cancer is a different disease with its own treatment. Thanks to scientific research, knowledge about cancer is constantly increasing. Because of this:
Is better known how cancer arises and behaves
Cancer can be detected earlier, faster and better
Are treatments more effective, targeted and safer
Has the quality of life for (ex) patients improved
More people survive
KWF is associated with multiple hospitals and surgeons across the Netherlands. Some current research projects associated with KWF are listed here.
Immunotherapy(defense against cancer): researchers have developed methods to arm the patient's immune cells in the laboratory against the tumor. This way the patient becomes his own cancer fighter. More and more applications are becoming available.
Detect cancer in a drop of blood: diagnosis of cancer is now often a matter of expensive scans or taking pieces of tissue. How nice would it be if a little bit of blood were enough? Researchers are working on this in various KWF projects.
- Save radiation: Jelena was diagnosed with nasopharyngeal cancer at a young age: a large tumor in the middle of her head. The operation proved impossible, so a radiation plan was made. Thanks to proton therapy, a new form of radiation, many side effects were saved.
The goal is to have a world without cancer, Together we are getting closer. Thank you very much for your contribution.
