Founded in 1994 in Luxembourg, Fondation Cancer has been working for 25 years in cancer control. In addition to information focused on prevention (among others: smoking prevention and smoking cessation support by behavioral support (CBT) and nicotine replacement therapy), screening and coping with cancer, one of its missions is to help patients and their loved ones.
The Fondation Cancer offers free psychological counseling and psychotherapeutic support for patients and their loved ones. The team consists of four psychologists with additional psychotherapeutic qualifications (e. g. Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Systemic Counseling and Therapy, Trauma Therapy and EMDR, Clinical Hypnosis, Person-Centered Psychotherapy, Psychosocial Oncology). Participations in groups and courses are also offered free of charge to all patients: speech groups for young adults, women with BRCA1 or BRCA2 genetic mutations; relaxation groups including yoga, mindfulness and sophrology; sports groups including gymnastics and zumba. Constantly seeking to improve the lives of patients, a graduated onco-beautician provides onco-aesthetic care for women and men at Fondation Cancer.
Financing cancer research projects is the third component of the missions of Fondation Cancer, which organises the annual solidarity event Relais pour la Vie. All these actions are possible thanks to the generosity of its donors and to the commitment of its volunteers.
