I got to know AIRC through my work as a researcher. I immediately grasped its importance in funding cancer research, as I had the opportunity to see first-hand the result of its daily efforts.
That’s why I decided to get directly involved in fundraising and become a volunteer myself. My philosophy is: everyone can make a difference!
AIRC has been supporting my lab research for 10 years and providing funding for young scientists who will be the future of cancer research.
Thanks to AIRC we are working to make colon cancer ever less frequent and ever more treatable.
Fundraising for cancer research comes as naturally as breathing and running to me.
I have been an AIRC volunteer since 1998. Recently my passion for running inspired me to use the power of sports to raise funds, as well as to encourage people to donate or join the great population of volunteers.
The experience of leukemia has made me stronger. And I got to meet some wonderful people who helped me a lot.
My trust in doctors and research really gave me the courage I needed. It taught me that we must never give up.
I started working for AIRC as a volunteer in 1992, and I have been Secretary of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Committee since 1994.
It is a truly stimulating job, and the greatest satisfaction comes from hearing our supporters thanking AIRC during street events and opening up with us about their experience of the disease.
