In 2007 I joined WALCE (Women Against Lung Cancer in Europe), a lung cancer patient organization based in Italy and networking at National and international level. Since that moment have been working as Patient Advocate with a particular focus on increasing lung cancer awareness and being involved in patient support activities. From April 2016, I am the President of LuCE (Lung Cancer Europe), a Pan European Lung Cancer Patient Organizations established with the aim to raise awareness about inequities regarding the access to lung cancer treatment and care in Europe and advocate European policies that will lead to improvements in lung cancer prevention, early detection, treatment and care. Member of IASLC Advocacy Committee since 2014 and delegate in GLCC (Global Lung Cancer Coalition) since 2009.
