Empathy vs. Apathy
Fuck Cancer promotes and defends the interests of cancer patients, connects organisations dedicated to them and spreads awareness about cancer.
How did it begin?
Behind the FUCK CANCER project are young cancer patients together with experienced enthusiasts and professionals who dedicate their free time to the project in the name of the superpower EMPATHY. All this has grown into a campaign that is currently underway and the establishment of an independent FUCK CANCER association.
What is our goal?
Awareness: one of the key pillars of our patient organisation is to raise awareness of cancer prevention and issues, primarily among young patients. We strive to increase public awareness through informative lectures and other outreach activities. The aim is to disseminate information about the importance of prevention and the correct practices that can lead to a reduction in the risk of cancer.
Supporting Heroes (patients). We pay special attention not only to supporting them in their education and employment, but also to providing psychological support throughout the treatment process and patients' return to normal life. We strive to actively support patients through various initiatives that include not only financial aspects but also care for their mental well-being.

Our efforts consist of actively engaging with these entities and acting as the voice of patients in the rule-making and decision-making process. Our goal is to advocate for

The road to recovery is a very thorny one, it requires tremendous will and determination, so we need to be proud of ourselves and walk with our heads held high.
Discover your potential and realise your potential!
The illness and the treatment will give us plenty of time to sort out our thoughts and find new potential in ourselves, to discover new interests. If we occupy not only our minds but also our hands with something creative, it will help us to break down negative thoughts.
We are here for you.
Get in touch anytime.

"This experience changes everything, closes one door called plans and opens a whole new world - a hospital world."
"It's good to ask the patient straight out what they're going through, what's going on, rather than having an awkward silence."
"It's easy enough these days to just surround yourself with carefree fun. Living in a bubble of positivity and good feelings."
"I will be undergoing treatment for the rest of my life, but that doesn't mean I have to sit at home on my ass. I want to enjoy life, not just survive."
"These people need tremendous support, and not just from me, not just from you, but from everyone."
"Fuck Cancer for me is a clear answer to this disease, which is definitely not easy."
