Patricia McColgan

Our son Rory was diagnosed with a brain tumour in 2008.  When he finished treatment, it became clear that there was no follow-up support to assist survivors in addressing late effects and to provide them with the best possible quality of life.

I am passionate about the power of collaboration and keeping the voice of those with lived experience central to any discussion about them.  My goal is to see survivorship services established throughout Europe, including Ireland.

I strongly believe that active participation of survivors and parents is essential to the success of PanCare and would be honoured to serve on the PanCare Board if chosen.

Monica Muraca

I’m Dr. Monica Muraca and I currently serve as clinical coordinator of the Late Effects Clinic at the Gaslini Institute in Italy.

My experience in the management of long-term effects in childhood cancer survivors began in 2016 with my progressive involvement in several European projects focused on survivorship and in the definition of IGHG guidelines.

Through my journey within the PanCare Community, I have learned the importance of comprehensive support and initiatives aimed at improving the quality of live of survivors. In particular, each professional and personal experience have provided me with valuable insights into best practices and innovative approaches in survivorship care.

I am determined to actively contribute to ensure that each survivors and caregivers can face their challenges with adequate resources and a strong support network.  I believe my unique perspective can bring significant value to the PanCare’s goals.

I hope my passion and commitment will be considered in this candidacy.

Thank you for considering my application, I look forward to the opportunity to further discuss how my experience aligns with PanCare!

Lieselotte Wauters

I’m a nurse consultant with 3.5 years’ experience in long term follow up care after childhood cancer at the pediatric
hemato-oncology and stem cell transplantation in the University hospital in Ghent, Belgium. Previous to my work as nurse consultant, I worked for 13 years as nurse on the pediatric hemato-oncology and stem cell transplantation. In September 2023 I helped found the PanCare/SIOPE Late Effects Nurses Steering group and have been an active member ever since.

The main focus in my work is the transition from pediatric to adult survivorship care: giving all the survivors a complete survivorship passport, motivating them to adopt healthy lifestyles and to have attention to the best possible quality of life.

If I am elected on the board, I will help to organise PanCare Nurses’ workshops at the in-person PanCare meetings. I want to bring together all kind of nurses (nurses at the wards, specialists, consultants, academics, researchers… interested in the long term follow up and nursing care of survivors of child, adolescent and young adult cancer (CAYA). I want to help to develop links and collaborations with patient and parents groups and other professional groups working in this field to offer a coordinated and evidence based response to the needs of CAYAS cancer survivors and their families.
