Who we are
The international Inspire2Live Patient Advocates organization inspires people (patients, clinicians and researchers), without limitations, to work together to get cancer under control by 2021 and to lead happy and healthy lives in harmony with cancer. Our Patient Advocates are leading in this process.
We strongly believe that every patient, researcher and clinician can initiate the change they want to see.
Our motto is “Never, ever quit!”
In memory of those who died too young of cancer and to inspire those who are fighting it.

Why we do what we do
Inspire2Live will always appeal to those who share our vision : pushing your limits will make your own live and that of others better. Whether we are searching for sponsors, initialize fundraising events with virtually impossible characteristics, or creating medical programs that will revolutionise health care, we are willing to go where no one has gone before. Each victory, however unrealistic it seemed at first, motivates us to continue to push the limits and set higher targets. We do this not for ourselves, but for those who truly need it.
After all, only a fool blows against the wind, but together we can change its course.
Our dream is to eliminate cancer as a deadly disease. We want to support cancer patients so that each one has the opportunity to lead a happy and healthy life in harmony with cancer.
We also believe that everybody can experience an overwhelming feeling of happiness dedicating yourself to the well-being of others. Everyone who has taken part in Inspire2Live events, knows what this special feeling is and what it means. It is the drive that makes us realize our dreams.
We have a mission:
Getting cancer under control and inspiring people to lead Happy and Healthy lives in Harmony with cancer!
How we operate
Inspire2Live is a patient advocacy organization. The purpose of Inspire2Live is get cancer under control by 2021. We believe that this is feasible when patients, physicians and scientists work together to share knowledge, data and inspiration together. Currently, there is a very unhealthy competition between faculties, research groups and universities. Inspire2Live brings these various parties together with very well-informed patients. In this context we work to optimize the processes so that new ideas, therapies and treatments are more quickly available to patients in the Netherlands but eventually worldwide.
