FECEC celebrates 20 years of history next to cancer patients and their families in Catalonia

Date: 16 de March de 2021
To commemorate 20 years of existence by supporting cancer patients, FECEC is organizing several communication actions and free webinars, which will take place throughout 2021.


The Catalan Federation of Organizations against Cancer (FECEC) was born in February 13 of 2001 with the aim of integrating efforts in the fight against oncological diseases in Catalonia. Its official presentation to the Parliament of Catalonia took place on October 15 of the same year. Today we celebrate 20 years of history pursuing the same initial goal: to work to improve the quality of life of cancer patients and their families in Catalonia. And we want to celebrate that. FECEC is a second-level organization that brings together various organizations that work to improve the quality of life of cancer patients and their families. The federation is an information census and provides services to federated cancer organizations. In addition, it encourages volunteering in the field of oncology, develops programs in the areas of dissemination and prevention, survivors and psychosocial research. Today, FECEC has 15 federated entities that together care for about 15,000 patients and families with psychosocial care services, we collaborate with more than 5,000 volunteers and employ more than 90 professionals. We celebrate 20 years of living with patients To commemorate these 20th birthday, we have organized several activities, adapted to the circumstances that the pandemic demands of us, such as free webinars as well as different communication actions that will review our history. You can follow all this through our social networks and this website, which we are launching and which we have created for this purpose: https://www.juntscontraelcancer.cat/fecec-20-anys. On this page you can find all the congratulations we receive from other organizations and volunteers. We have also selected the 20 most significant photos in our history and we have explained the details of that moment, that action, that person or that program. The webinars will be divided into two blocks: one cycle is taking place in March with 5 conferences on different topics, and the other in November with another 5 lectures. The main focus of the webinars, entitled ‘Cancer: Present and Future’, is obviously cancer.
