Earlier this year, Victor Gîrbu, a cancer survivor from Moldova, patient advocate and project manager at Youth Cancer Europe (YCE), spoke at the Young Cancer Survivors Conference in Brussels about the inequalities faced by various groups of cancer survivors.

In his speech, Victor also referred to the queer community, as the editorial team of BangBang.md invited YCE to discuss the obstacles faced by cancer survivors from the LGBTQI+ communities, Roma, and refugees and their work to combat the inequalities faced by people from different and diverse communities.
