Cancer is the public enemy n°1
Who has not been affected, either directly or through a loved-one, by the scourge that is cancer?
It strikes like lightning, without warning, devastating the life of the one it targets, and those of his or her relatives…
In France, each year :
- 382 000 new cases of cancer, with the number rising every year.
- 157 0000 die from cancer.
Today we are able to cure up to 60% of cancers in adults and 80% of cancers in children. This of course represents a lot of progress compared to the recent past, but it is still not enough.
