Victories over Cancer
Enabling those affected by cancer to enjoy more of life’s meaningful moments: these are the Victories over Cancer that make our work worthwhile.
Despite the incredible work of the oncology community across Europe, cancer remains the second leading cause of premature death in the region.[i] [ii] At Janssen, we are working to change what a cancer diagnosis means, so that one day the words “you have cancer” will be less terrifying for people to hear and less distressing for physicians to say.
We are aiming to make cancer a manageable, even curable, condition, and dedicating ourselves to developing transformational and precise treatment solutions that improve lives and enable those affected by cancer to enjoy more of life’s meaningful moments.
For us, these everyday, individual Victories Over Cancer are what make our work so worthwhile.
