PanCare is a multidisciplinary pan‐European network of professionals, survivors and their families that aims to reduce the frequency, severity and impact of late side‐effects of the treatment of children and adolescents with cancer. PanCare is working to achieve equity of access to care for childhood cancer survivors across Europe, to perform collaborative research and to act as a resource of research based information concerning all late side‐effects of cancer treatment. An important aim of PanCare is to work with the European Community to increase awareness and research about childhood cancer survivors. 

The mission of PanCare is to ensure equal access to optimal long-term care and to improve quality of life for every child and adolescent in Europe after their cancer treatment.

 

  Everyone in the PanCare community will be saddened to hear of the passing of Dr Giulio D’Angio, Professor Emeritus of Radiation Oncology at the University of Pennsylvania, who died on 14th September at the age of 96 years. „Dan“, as he was widely and affectionately known, was one of those very rare individuals who was a true international leader in clinical medicine whilst also being universally regarded with great affection and respect. As described in Professor Maris’ obituitary, Dan was an influential figure in many medical disciplines, but for many clinicians and especially for everyone associated with PanCare, his greatest and most enduring achievement was in raising the profile of childhood cancer survivorship. His clinical knowledge, experience and wisdom in this field were matched only by his compassion for survivors and their families and his approachability to his many colleagues and acquaintances of all ages, creeds and disciplines.

We in the PanCare community have lost a true godfather of our shared vision of childhood and adolescent cancer survivorship care, but our work will always be guided by his reminder that „cure is not enough“.

Please remember him with us. Dear Giulio, you will forever be in our hearts, rest in peace.
