Simona Ene – Hope Support Group, Romania and ECPC

Simona Ene began volunteering at the Hope Support Group in Romania to work with patients, but was diagnosed with a border line ovarian tumour shortly after.

Prior to her diagnosis, Ms Ene had found a large gap in information that was available in Romanian about basic cancer prevention and basic information about the disease. As a result she began to translate this information from English, which helped her recognise her symptoms early.

She now shares her experiences with others and explains how access to basic information led to her early diagnosis and potentially saved her life.

Ms Ene is also the Vice-President of the European Cancer Patient Coalition
