It is only by promoting research that we can move forward. This is one of the Foundation’s main aims. Supporting BIG against breast cancer (BIG) goes without saying.” Dr Carole Bauer, President of Fondation Cancer Luxembourg

“BIG against breast cancer is one of those Good Causes which is dear to the hearts of many Belgians, including myself. The fact is that we all know someone in our surroundings that has been directly or indirectly affected by breast cancer or any other kind of cancer. It goes without saying that we will not hesitate to contribute to improving patient survival, quality of life and finding the most appropriate treatment for every patient.
