With the slogan “It means a lot”, Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends (PASYKAF) held a press conference on September 27, 2023, at the Leventis Gallery, to present the 32nd awareness- and fundraising campaign “Together in Life”.  The campaign’s fundraising goals are to maintain, develop and continually improve the Association’s services, cancer prevention offerings and research programmes.

Every contribution to PASYKAF translates into relief, care, support and hope. No matter how small, every donation makes a big difference! Because in PASYKAF we become one together… we give hope to life!

A roadside fundraiser will also be held over October 4-8, and, for the third year running, an all-day telethon will be held in collaboration with Alpha Cyprus, on Friday, October 6, 2023.

At the press event, PASYKAF President Dr. Anna Achilleoudi warmly welcomed guests, noting that: “we continue to be ‘Together in Life’, more than 37 years. Every day we strive for a better quality of life for all our fellow human beings facing cancer, as well as for their loved ones”.

PASYKAF CEO Nicolas Philippou, pointed out that: “PASYKAF has been caring for people with cancer and their families for 37 years. It provides free professional supportive and palliative care services. It focuses on prevention, research and rights of people with cancer experience.”
