Money can defeat cancer

Agency: DDB


Health Care in Poland is underfunded. This is especially evident in the case of cancer patients. There is very limited or no access to the new generation of drugs. Several treatment methods, like immune therapy or molecular targeted chemotherapy, are not available in Poland, nor funded by the National Health Fund. Alivia is an Oncology Foundation that believes that more often than not, in Poland the most important missing factor in the fight against cancer… is money. In our non-for-profit campaign, we followed the road less travelled. Instead of the cliché route of “emotional blackmail” we chose to empower people, to give them hope and show them that cancer is something you can fight and conquer. With the help of essential resources, cancer can be defeated. Crayfish in Polish is cancer.

This professional campaign titled 'Money can defeat cancer' was published in Poland in June, 2013. It was created for the brand: Alivia, by ad agency: DDB. This Film medium campaign is related to the Public Interest industry and contains 1 media asset. It was submitted almost 11 years ago.
