SEMINAR AT THE SENATE FOR A SPECIFIC RESEARCH ON CHILDREN’S CANCERS
Mobilising people on the little-known situation regarding children’s cancers and debating a legislation encouraging paediatric research.
Saturday, 15 February 2014 – World Day against children’s cancer. Imagine for Margo has organised a seminar on a specific paediatric research at the Palais du Luxembourg, under the high patronage of the president of the President of the Senate. The seminar brings together the major actors involved in this problem: politicians, researchers, doctors, pharmaceutical companies, associations, testimony from patients, students of law. An afternoon of discussions and exchanges with the aim of finding solutions to favour the research on paediatric cancers.
We had a rich discussion, of great quality and sometimes rather lively… we will now continue this exchanges with the different participants and will try to convert them into concrete actions.
More work to come, new mobilizations, but we remain highly motivated. Go, Fight, Win!
