Isabel Mestres: The Cancer Care Crusaders – A Tale of Modern-day Musketeers

Isabel Mestres shared on LinkedIn:

“The Cancer Care Crusaders: A Tale of Modern-day Musketeers

C/Can cannot truly be locally led without leadership who understands and identifies with the contexts in which we work.

I am honored to work with three top women who lead our fight against cancer across their respective regions. Allow me to introduce you to our very own trio of modern-day Musketeers:

Sophie Bussmann-Kemdjo, Heart of Africa and Europe: Fearless and resolute, Sophie champions the localization agenda, ensuring power resides within the communities where we work.

Chika Kitajima, Light of Asia: Chika’s resolve shines a light on global disparities, convincing governments to increase investment in the fight against cancer.

Maria F. Navarro, Spirit of the Americas: Passionate and insightful, Maria pioneers cancer care innovation, leaving no patient behind.

Like D’Artagnan, I am honored to work with this amazing modern-day Musketeers: ALL FOR ONE AND ONE FOR ALL!”
