International Patient Meeting Report - September 2016, Warsaw, Poland
A Gastro-Intestinal Stromal Tumour is rare, but you are not alone!
7th SPAEN Annual Conference, September 8-10, 2016 in Warsaw, Poland
Once again, the community of patient advocates for sarcomas, GIST and desmoids came together for the annual Sarcoma PAtients EuroNet Conference.
This year, Poland was the host country, welcoming all participants with great hospitality and warmth to their beautiful capital Warsaw.
The three conference days were full of learning about medical topics ranging from pathology to liquid biopsy in GIST, to reconstruction after bone surgery in bone sarcoma and also about sharing experience.
This year SPAEN became an international association further to recent connections with GIST and Sarcoma advocacy groups in Africa and India.
Our Trustees Michael Sayers, David Falconer and Jayne Bressington were involved in the Learning, teaching, sharing and a great sense of community that is always present at the SPAEN conference.
