No more suffering due to cancerSonia Garcia Blanco
My father in law passed away after a few weeks of immense pain. He was diagnosed with cancer at a very late stage, where nothing, apart from pain relief was possible. My father was diagnosed with a cyst cancer around the pancreas at a very early step. The tumor was removed and he is following a normal life. My dream would be to go once a year to the doctor, do a test and ensure that, if something is growing in my body, it will be detected so early that it could be easily treated.
Part of my research at the UT deals with the development of optical sensors for the early detection of diseases. I would love to see this great collaborative effort materializing and helping bringing bigger funding that will permit this dream to come true!
I will be running a full marathon on the 18th of April 2021 (provided that I do no get injured during my training). The Enschede marathon has been cancelled due to Corona. I will be therefore be running “solo” (or with my support team!). It will be a very special long run, highly motivating since it will bring a worthy contribution towards such great cause!!
