Lined up in the battle against cancer there are researchers, doctors, nurses, experts, charitable bodies and donors. All are armed with willpower, determination and compassion.

Confronted by cancer, there are patients who have the patience and energy to combat it.

They stand together to carry the hope that, thanks to innovation, there will be a world free of cancer.

Individuals at the heart of innovation.

Treatment can also be in the exchange of glances.

Glances touch the heart.

The importance of care.

The value of relationships and connections.

Technology supporting individuals.
