Tribute to Selma Schimmel

The 5th European Advocacy in Action at the ESMO 2014 Congress in Madrid was a special one. The forum was opened with a special tribute to the Vital Options Founder, Selma Schimmel, who sadly passed away in May 2014. Selma's role in the evolution of greater understanding about the needs of the cancer advocates in both Europe and around the world has made a permanent mark in the cancer community.
