About some National Survivors Groups and Activities

 

Austria

After the ICCCPO 2003 Survivor's Meeting in Barretstown we decided to set up a survivors group in Austria.  Now we are about 20 young people all over Austria who are involved in many different activities for survivors and for newly diagnosed teens. We created a website (www.survivors.at) in order to inform on medical or psychological issues, on our meetings and parties and on our aims. In 2005 we started to visit teens in Viennese hospitals: support for teens from young people who experienced the same - chemotherapy, radiation, side effects,...  Once a month we meet each other in a café to talk informally about many different issues. This is the opportunity for other interested survivors to get to know us and to join us. Hope to see you soon!!!
