Bladder Cancer

Bladder cancer is not rare. It is the 5th most common cancer in the Western world.

  • It can affect anyone: men and women of all ages, even children
  • In Europe, there are over 150,000 new cases every year. One in Five of them will be women.
  • It is the only ‘top 10’ cancer for which the prognosis is getting worse. 
  • In Europe, 53,000 people die of bladder cancer every year.
  • There have not been any major new treatments for over 40 years. Recent developments in immuno-oncology therapy offer some hope. 

Despite the toll, bladder cancer gets less than 1% of the cancer research spend. 

Please join our Thunderclap on Bubbles for Bladder Cancer Day, 20 May 2018, to raise awareness of this forgotten disease.
