TRIBU CANCER, recognized as a French non-profit charitable organization, was created in August 2004 by Nathalie Laporte, a cancer patient, who passed away in May 2005. TRIBU CANCER’s MISSION is to provide a mutual aid and communication network structured to help cancer patients and ill adults become aware of their own deepest desires and to achieve them. Nathalie herself benefited from a spontaneous outpouring of involvement and generosity from friends and then from friends of friends during her illness…all of them together contributed to her achieving her dreams and goals before she died. Her desire, in founding the organization, was to show other patients that there is so much they can do and achieve, with the support of others, even while facing a difficult illness. It’s not a time to lie down and die. Nathalie often said, “Life has so much in store for you, you just don’t know it yet, so get out and live”. The organization connects those who are facing illness alone with a network of volunteers who wish to express their solidarity in concrete terms, notably using online tools.
Tribu Cancer develops these simple yet powerful tools into a network of support for cancer patients available 24 -7.
