Nicolae Ciuca: The national plan to fight cancer will mean the transition to a personalized medicine

The power of the example of those who defeated cancer can have a mobilizing and encouraging effect for all those who discover that they have this diagnosis, said Prime Minister Nicolae Ciuca. He added that the National Cancer Plan will mean a paradigm shift, from treatment schemes that are sometimes quite rigid to personalized medicine.

“The power of the example of those who defeated the disease can have a mobilizing and encouraging effect.”

His message comes in the context of marking the National Day of Cancer Survivors. On this occasion, Victoria Palace will be illuminated on Sunday evening, between 21.00 and 23.00, in the colors and the symbol logo chosen for this day – the Yellow Water Lily, according to Agerpres.

“The initiative to establish National Cancer Survivors Day is a message of hope for those who, unfortunately, find that they have this diagnosis. The power of the example of those who have overcome the disease can have a mobilizing and encouraging effect at the same time. The confidence that you too can pass such a test means that you have paved the way for healing, with the valuable support of doctors and access to treatments, “said the prime minister.

According to him, in all this effort, the role of the authorities and the entire health system is just as important both during the treatment period and after healing.

“We want these people to know that we are with them in the battle for life and that their hope is truly fulfilled. In this sense, the National Plan to Fight Cancer, carried out under the auspices of the Presidential Administration, with experts from the Ministry of Health, representatives of civil society and cancer patients, will mean a paradigm shift, from treatment schemes that are sometimes quite rigid, towards a personalized medicine that requires a more precise diagnosis and a treatment adapted to the needs of each patient.

Through this Plan, Romania will join the Western countries in adopting innovative treatments earlier than before, it will also focus on the psychological aspect of the treatment, but especially on the side of early tests and diagnoses, and this also involves the operationalization of a Register National Center for Oncology Patients, which will give the opportunity to follow the evolution of each patient “, said the Prime Minister.

Romania has, starting this year, on the first Sunday of June, a day dedicated to those who managed to win the fight against a disease from the oncological spectrum.

“The government expresses its full support for the efforts to provide confidence in treatment options and chances of cure, while raising awareness of the importance of preventing and early diagnosis of cancer – a diagnosis that many consider hope, but which the cancer survivors overcame by showing an unsuspected power, born of hope “, it is shown in a communiqué of the Executive.
