the essential
At the town hall in Agen, the last general assembly of the Departmental Committee of the League against Cancer highlighted the different means of fighting this scourge that is the disease.

The Canal room of the Agen town hall, made available free of charge to the assembly, served as a setting for this meeting which was attended by numerous participants including elected officials or representatives of elected officials from Agen and several municipalities, notably Le Passage and Lafox. Jean Calabet, president of the Comité 47 association, thanked the speakers, service providers, partners and volunteers.

“Fortunately the State doesn’t do everything, it would do everything wrong!”

Before addressing this assessment, the deputy and vice-president of the Cancer study group at the National Assembly, Michel Lauzzana, expressed his attachment to the League against cancer. After recalling the problems linked to the practice of medicine and those of a system “in
end of course”, he recalled that, of course, the legislature had a role to play, but that structures like the League were essential. “Luckily the State doesn’t do everything, because it would do everything wrong! » he emphasized, not without malice.

The results of the past year

The president then detailed the different events that took place during 2023. As every year, the three flagship actions (Pink October for breast cancer, Golden September for pediatric cancers and Blue Mars for colorectal cancer) brought together a very large number of participants. This was followed by a retrospective in images of all the events, organizations and demonstrations that took place during the year 2023. The presentation of the 19th challenge of the Cœur Ovale association (“most loyal and most important donor” ) gave rise to warm applause from the audience. The profits from this united, sporting and friendly day were donated to the League.

Quality speakers

Professor Merlio, researcher, head of the tumor biology department at the University Hospital and the University of Bordeaux, captivated the audience during a conference call. Then, Doctor Marichez, researcher at the hepato-bilio-pancreatic institute in Bordeaux, allowed the audience to benefit from a presentation on the progress of bile duct cancer (3000 new cases in France).

The accounts were approved and received the discharge of the assembly. It closed with the welcome of the two new administrators.
