Polish journalist scoops first prize in prestigious European award

9 July 2007 - Pawel Walewski, health editor with Polands biggest selling weekly magazine Polityka, has been awarded the European School of Oncologys Best Cancer Reporter Award for 2007.

Linda Geddes a correspondent with the New Scientist magazine and Maria Valerio Sainz who writes for the online version of Spanish newspaper El Mundo were joint runners up and will receive a prize of 5,000 each.

I hope I have helped to raise awareness of the desperation some cancer patients feel, and the need for their doctors to listen to them and help them make the right decisions for their health.
