Talking differently about breast cancer is a challenge of Europa Donna Luxembourg, an association formed in 2002. Thanks to presentations on the disease, people sharing their stories and public awareness campaigns such as the “Broschtkriibslaf”, the taboo around cancer has been greatly reduced. The primary objective: to raise public awareness about breast cancer and the risk factors in order to promote a responsible attitude amongst women towards their health. Europa Donna Luxembourg wants to tell every woman that she is not going through the ordeal of this disease alone. Having cancer is a very distressing experience.
