The European Cancer Community Foundation relies heavily on the support of individuals, organisations, and corporations. Their leadership and generosity are an inspiration. Their contributions allow innovative projects to make a meaningful impact in the fight against cancer, saving lives and improving the wellbeing of people across Europe touched by this devastating disease.

These are just some of the initial contributors.
