Cyprus Association of Cancer Patients and Friends (PASYKAF) is a voluntary, non-profit, charitable organization.
Founded in 1986 by 21 people with cancer experience and other devoted friends, has evolved into an organization of thousands of members and supporters, providing professional health and home palliative care services to cancer patients, as well as prevention programs.
PASYKAF went public, sending out the message that yes, we have had cancer but we can and are still here. We have opened our arms to welcome more and more people with cancer experience who were isolated and frightened.
PASYKAF purpose is to change the mentality, not only of society, but also of scientists and the state so that the patients feel that PASYKAF is here for them. PASYKAF can demand improvements in cancer patient treatments and to distinguish what is true or false in many cancer issues.
