Empathy vs. Apathy
We don't have a problem with the word "F*CK" but with the word "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?
Our goal is to spread awareness of adolescent cancer based on experience and a strong, respected brand that you can be a part of. The aim of the project is to create a space where we can bring together organisations, foundations, experts, patients and their personal experiences on one platform over 3-4 years. The goal is to have young people who are at the age of illness participate in and help co-create the campaigns that will follow. We will be a signpost for anyone who needs to get information about their illness or the illness of a loved one. We don't want to hide behind nice words, because we know that this disease is definitely not nice and it doesn't fight with the sick, so we are not going to treat it with kid gloves either.
Don't be afraid to ask for help!
This is the moment when we should realize that we really need help and asking for it at such a time is really desirable. Illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but we must learn to deal with the situation. 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.

For the neighbourhood
Offer help, listen, hug, let them know you are there for them! And know that this energy pays off!
They are not contagious, they are just sick, so don't move your eyes, don't be scared, communicate!
They can feel sorry for themselves and more pity won't really heal them, so - don't feel sorry for them, cheer them up!
Soldiers & Heroes
"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."
"The world is just an echo, what I put into it will come back to me, be it positive or destructive."
