Stichting KiKa sounds gong to call attention to childhood cancer research

Children Cancer Free Foundation (KiKa) visits Beursplein 5 and opens trading. Lisanne Spaander sounds the gong.

Lisanne, currently under treatment for childhood cancer, has released a CD single. Lisanne sings the song “Vechtersbaas” (Fighter) to put her emotions into words. In addition, she wants to help others to stay positive. Lisanne has completed the toughest part of her treatment. She will receive several treatments until October, after which she hopes to be done.

Kika funds research on childhood cancer. At this time, 75% of the children with cancer are cured. That's good, but not good enough. KiKa aims to increase the cure rate to 95% in 2025. To achieve this, there is still much costly research required.
