Why would she do that?
As a researcher in training I am trying to shed light on the molecular pathways underlying pancreatic cancer. This is referred to as fundamental research and might one day help us to identify novel drug targets and to develop better treatments for cancer patients.
But what about those who are already fighting their battle? They need therapies to cope with ongoing treatments and to sustain an acceptable quality of life. What about patients with genetic predispositions to certain cancers? They need access to regular, non-invasive monitoring of their health status to prevent outbreak of the disease.
Cancer research encompasses many aspects and I obviously cannot cover them all by myself. For this reason, I have decided to join the Alpe d'HuZes 2019 and to raise money for the KWF fund, a major sponsor of cancer research in the Netherlands.
