A new case of cancer is diagnosed in the EU every 9 seconds, making the disease a personal issue for many Europeans. We met a special choir from Ireland, who have their own way of beating cancer, spreading the message of hope from the top of their lungs.

This is no ordinary choir. Most of the 42 women participating are cancer survivors. On World Cancer Day, they came to Brussels from Ireland to send a strong message.

We are here to give people inspiration to say we are celebrating the people who we have lost and that we are all still here.
