About the Danish Cancer Society

The Danish Cancer Society’s vision is a life without cancer. This is why the Society is working to

  • reduce the number of cancer cases
  • increase the cancer survival rate
  • improve life with cancer

The Danish Cancer Society is a disease-combating association. The Danish Cancer Society works to be a voice for cancer sufferers. Through research, prevention and patient support, the Society fights to minimise the number of cancer cases, increase the number of cancer survivors and optimise conditions for cancer sufferers and their relatives to ensure the best life possible after cancer.

The Danish Cancer Society’s activities are based on the strongest pool of knowledge available, a common set of values, a common ethical basis and popular support. Volunteering and financial support from the Danish population are the prerequisite for the Danish Cancer Society’s research, prevention and patient support activities.

The Danish Cancer Society is a democratic association based on membership and volunteering.
