#Cancer comes in many shapes and forms, and so do we. TRK Fusion cancer is rare overall, but can occur in many parts of the body, affecting both adults and children. To spread awareness of rare cancers such as TRK Fusion cancer, we are collaborating with organizations across the Asia Pacific region, such as the Singapore Society of Oncology Society and Parkway Cancer Centre, to share the personal stories and experiences of healthcare professionals and patients with such rare cancers. How do they picture these cancers? What positive developments in this field can patients look forward to? We posed them these questions and more – stay tuned and watch out for the #PictureYourCancer hashtags to follow their stories.
