Support Casper – Innovative Pancreatic Cancer Research
The face of the campaign is Prof. Dr Casper van Eijck, who has been a specialist at Erasmus MC for 30 years. Prof. Dr Casper van Eijck is not only a renowned surgeon and researcher in the field of pancreatic cancer.He is also very involved with his patients who come from abroad. In addition, Prof. Dr Casper van Eijck is associated with football club Feyenoord as the club doctor.
The Support Casper campaign is part of and founded by the ‘Stichting Overleven met Alvleesklierkanker’ (translation: Survival with Pancreatic Cancer Foundation). Both have existed since 2015. The founders are all friends or family of people who have died of pancreatic cancer. Unfortunately there is little attention for pancreatic cancer. Presumably because most people die so quickly that there is no time and space to set up actions or ask for attention.
The Support Casper campaign is committed to providing financial support for the much-needed research and development of an effective treatment method by viro-immunotherapy. Casper has put together a team that includes virologists, pediatric oncologists and neurosurgeons from Erasmus MC, Leiden University Medical Center and UMC Utrecht. Together they want to work on methods that no longer focus on the disease, but on the strength of the patient and his ability to use his own body against the malignant tumor. They think it is possible!
Their ambition is to be able to produce effective and affordable medicines for pancreatic cancer patients by 2030, so that they live longer and feel less sick.
