Breast Cancer Organisation Fights For Patients Rights
Breast cancer awareness month came to a close last weekend with thousands of people in Sweden wearing the familiar pink ribbons. Awareness of the disease has grown in recent years but across Europe, awareness of a patients rights for the best possible treatment vary greatly.
An organisation dedicated to this issue, is Europa Donna , an organisation which connects patients, professionals, medics, journalists and politicians, anyone interested in improving the conditions for breast cancer patients within the medical systems of their countries. Europa donna held a conference in Stockholm recently and Radio Sweden's Jasna Carlen was there.
