Who am I?
I am a Patient Advocate of Inspire2Live, since 2017. I survived rectum cancer during summer 2017, treated successfully. Actually I am taking part in a scientific program “Wait and See” chaired by Prof. Geraard Beets (AVL). Father (68) 2 brothers (42 & 42) & 1 (56) sister passed away as a result of various cancers. Amongst closely connected family and friends are quite a lot (ex) cancer patients.
My personal motto:
‘Even if I know that the world is about to go tomorrow, I plant an Appletree today’, (Maarten Luther)
I see it as a mission to never ever quit and be there for everyone that needs me. I am eager to: Making my experience, know-how and network available for Inspire2Live and (ex)cancer patients.
