Several oncological patients have joined "Oncoalliance" on individual basis:


I was diagnosed with colorectal cancer more than ten years ago and successfully treated due to its early stage. I am alive and I consider it my duty to do everything to take care of my health and help others to do the same. Hospice and palliative care in Latvia have been priorities of my work already for several years.


I support women's health, namely, policies that provide access to innovative treatments and the latest medical innovations. I advocate for the life-saving treatment for all patients who need it.


My priorities in representing cancer patients’ interests are the availability and quality of multidisciplinary treatment and care both during and after the treatment. I am also interested in educational issues: facilitating the cancer screening attendance in society, reducing the cancer stigma, promoting health literacy and health awareness in all age groups, because colorectal cancer is not only a disease of seniors.


Priority – advocacy of rights and interests of onco-gynaecological patients, quality of treatment in accordance with ESMO guidelines.
