‘Bladder Cancer Digital World Tour’ concludes the Bladder Cancer Awareness Month shining a light on bladder cancer impact worldwide

Dedicated campaign for Bladder Cancer Awareness Month: Providing clearer information about bladder cancer, its causes and symptoms will help reduce the impact of this disease – and save thousands of lives.

We are working hard to connect a growing network of bladder cancer patient communities. Our aim is for the map to become a living tool – a new resource for knowledge sharing and dialogue that supports bladder cancer communities, stimulates wider cooperation, and educates more people about the disease worldwide. We believe this effort can contribute to reducing the burden of bladder cancer in every country.
