Last October, The World Bladder Cancer Patient Coalition joined for the first time the World Cancer Congress 2022. Organized in Geneva, Switzerland, by the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC), the Congress welcomed 2000+ participants from over 120 countries for the first time since 2018.
WBCPC Executive Director, Alex Filicevas, joined a digital panel discussion titled “Empowering genitourinary cancer patients to become their own best advocates.” Organized by the European Association of Urology and co-developed by WBCPC, the discussion featured speakers from the International Kidney Cancer Coalition (IKCC) and the European Cancer Leagues (ECL).
Alex stressed the need for more bladder cancer support networks and organizations around the world, sharing the Start-up guide for bladder cancer patient groups and the support frameworks that WBCPC must support patient advocates starting a group in their community.
