Gynecological Cancerpatients in Finland is a national patient association which works as an advocacy organization for gynaecological cancer patients and their families.
The aim of the association is to advance gynecological cancer patients’ physical, psychological and social quality of life and improving of rehabilitation. We provide reliable information about gynaecological cancers and their prevention, early diagnosis as well as different treatments.
We publish reliable materials and give advice/counselling and peer support to gynecological cancer patients and their families. We also organize trainings and lectures to our members.
In fall 2019 Marjo Sorsa and Eva-Maria Strömsholm, who both are cancer survivors, contacted professor Ulla Puistola. Marjo and Eva-Maria told her about the need to establish an own association for gynecological cancer patients. Collaboration started quickly, and the association was registered on 19th of February 2020.
