Making fight against bladder cancer the New Year’s resolution
The New Year is the best time to turn over a new leaf, try again and find new opportunities to make the coming year the best one yet. Below you will find some suggested New Year’s resolutions just for you to make a positive impact on your community of people affected by bladder cancer.
Start a bladder cancer patient support group
Make a resolution to start a patient and/or carer support group for people affected by bladder cancer and create a safe, open, and reliable space to share, learn and find comfort. Patient groups play a vital role in the fight against bladder cancer, and you can be part of it. Explore ways how to start your bladder cancer patient group in your local community, and get inspired from ideas and experiences of our members.
Help someone start a bladder cancer support group
Help someone to start a bladder cancer patient support group in your country or local community by sharing our Start-up guide for bladder cancer patient groups. This incredible community resource has all the steps to consider for someone starting a patient group. Also, encourage them to get in touch with us, as the World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition is here to provide support, knowledge and connect them with other bladder cancer patient advocates, patients and carers.
Talk to someone you know about WBCPC
Talk to your community, colleagues or friends about us, and if you know someone affected by bladder cancer guide them our way. Our growing coalition unites 14 organisations from 10 countries around the world. Our mission is to make sure that national bladder cancer patient support groups and organisations are strong enough to support people affected by bladder cancer, enhance awareness and advocate for better diagnosis, access and care. We are here to provide guidance, support and a helping hand to aid anyone’s work in their country to make a difference. Find ways to get involved here.
We invite you to join us at our next World Bladder Cancer Patient Forum in October 2023 where we will be meeting and connecting with the bladder cancer community around the world. In the meantime, watch the recordings of previous events to learn from real-world examples of patient support and advocacy from our community.
